RT2933 - DNA Test Results: Handling the Unexpected

Session Description

Everyone has their own reasons for taking an autosomal DNA test. Some want to see their ethnic breakdown. Some want additional evidence to support their genealogy paper trail. Still others are looking for clues to help break down a brick wall in their family tree. Some people take genealogical DNA tests with the express intention of discovering biological family. How would you react if one of those people showed up on your DNA match list as a 1st cousin or close family member? In this session we will cover best practices for handling unexpected DNA results. We will talk about communicating with surprising new family members. And, we will share the process for using AncestryDNA tools to discover exactly how this new family member fits into your family tree.
