Introduction to DNA

This class is intended for those who have been thinking about doing a DNA test but are not sure where to start. It is also for those who have already tested but are not sure what to do with the results.

Topics to be covered include: The basic terminology of DNA and how it is inherited; the different types of DNA tests and their usefulness in genealogy; the primary companies offering DNA testing; ethnicity estimates; and an introduction to tools for organizing results and applying them to genealogical research, including a few examples.

Jeanne Hoadley has been a member of the Rogue Valley Genealogical Society for over five years and a volunteer librarian since 2019. She has been interested in Genealogy most of her life, having been drawn in by a great aunt who did things the “old” slow way. Jeanne holds a Master’s Degree in Geography from the University of Denver and is retired from a career in Meteorology and Air Quality Management.
