The previous post in this short series talked about the genealogy basics one should have covered before dabbling in DNA. Now we’re ready to explore how to use some of the DNA information in conjunction with that genealogy.
Last month I suggested that soon I’d be sharing some results of a citizen science DNA project I’m working on. However, I realize now that the proposed blog draft is too long, with too many diversions to explain some basics that might help newer readers.
So I’m taking a step back and planning several short posts first. The theme is ‘Using shared cM counts to help find the common ancestor.’
