Testing Family Members (why & who to choose)

It will explain what to consider and how to go about creating a test plan to answer specific genealogical questions. The general theory will be backed up by examples of how to use your own results coupled with your family results to solve your genealogical problems.
When Your Tree Is a Banyan: Working with Endogamy and DNA
Endogamy, the practice of marrying within a specific group, often results in members of that group being related to one another multiple ways. This can cause relatives to share more DNA than expected and can complicate genetic genealogy analyses. This talk will address how to identify endogamy and best practices for working with it.
