Color Coding DNA Matches

About the Presenter

I have a bachelor’s degree in biology education and started doing traditional genealogy twenty years ago. Five years ago, I took my first DNA test. Now, I’m thrilled that my passions for genealogy, science, and teaching have merged!

Early in 2018, I started working with my first adoptee case as a “Search Angel.” The list of names was unknown to me, their relationships uncertain, and often they lacked trees. I needed a way to sort those matches so I could concentrate on finding relatives who matched this adoptee on her biological father’s side.
