Genetic networks are groups of DNA matches all related to a common set of ancestors. Genetic networks can be used to help confirm an ancestral line, break down brick walls and organize DNA matches. This presentation will explain how to identify genetic networks, organize your matches into groups, and use them to make discoveries.
This presentation is part two of a half-day workshop preceded by “Getting the Most Out of AncestryDNA.” Join us for one or both lectures!
