Topic: Tracing Ancestral Lines in the 1700s Using DNA
Many of us are faced with genealogical brick walls involving ancestors who lived in the 1700s or early 1800s. Autosomal DNA testing is increasingly becoming an integral part of modern genealogical research used to help solve these types of problems. You can increase the power of using autosomal DNA test results to predict correct genealogical relationships in the 1700s if you test multiple descendants of an ancestral couple on multiple lines of descent. This presentation will provide examples where DNA analysis was used to solve genealogical research questions involving ancestors who lived in the 1700s and will demonstrate how you can start making these types of discoveries as well.
