A new course has been launched today! The course, Using DNA for Genealogy is being instructed by well known genealogist, Dr Maurice Gleeson. The course is set as a six week course with a new lesson being made available each week. This allows you time to process the information you are learning. The first lesson is available now. 

Topics for the six weeks include: 

  • A general introductory to DNA for genealogy
  • Using Y DNA to research surnames
  • The benefits of surname projects
  • Using autosomal DNA for genealogy
  • Tackling brick walls such as illegitimacy and adoption using DNA
  • Seeking consultation to interpret your results
Dr Gleeson will be available for an online chat twice during the first six weeks. Registered students will receive notification of these dates.

Although the course is scheduled to be completed in six weeks, there is no rush. Once all of the lessons have been made available you can take as long as you need to complete the course. Your access to it will not expire in six weeks.
