YDNA testing should be the first genetic tool in every genealogist’s toolbox. The YDNA test will produce two kinds of information: A YDNA profile, and a prediction of your deep ancestral group, or haplogroup. One can help you research your ancestral connections, and the other your deep ancestral heritage (and learn how the two are working together better than ever before to strengthen your pedigree chart!). How can all that help be contained in a list of numbers? Come learn how these numbers are the key to your genealogical success. Be prepared to be surprised as you CAN learn how to use them. We will cover database searching, SNP testing, and project membership, to name just a few topics. We will go over some examples of how individuals and families have used YDNA testing in their genealogical research. Give your pedigree a jump start with YDNA.
