Gail Colby, Coordinator

The DNA Special Interest Group (SIG) is a forum for WHAGS members to meet and learn about DNA and its use in genealogical research. We will learn together and help each other solve any DNA-related mysteries.  Members of all levels of DNA knowledge are welcome to learn and help other members.

In the SIG we will work our way through the book Genetic Genealogy in Practice by Blaine T. Bettinger and Debbie Parker Wayne. Meetings are normally held the 1st Tuesday of the month at 10am via Zoom.

Next meeting:   Tuesday, May 7th, 10:00 am, via Zoom

This month's topic:  DNA Tools - AutoLineage by Genetic Affairs 

     An additional tool supporting DNA analysis to break through brick walls is AutoLineage. AutoLineage combines several Genetic Affairs tools to help you analyze your matches, shared matches (ICW), and matches’ trees, from ALL companies, identifying potential common ancestors. AutoLineage is a subscription site that also offers pay-as-you-go purchases of credits. Come check this tool out to see if it may help you!


Please visit the DNA SIG page in the Members Only area for more information, copies of past and current handouts, and an active Zoom link to our meetings.
