I’ve Got Or I’m Getting My DNA Report: Now What Do I Do?
Presented by Patti Gillespie, from a non-geneticist point of view, will explain how to choose a company and a test, what to do while waiting for the report, and how to maximize the report results. Whether deciding who to contact, how to use the research within the DNA report, or just how to link our trees to our DNA results, this session will be helpful. The potential use of raw data will be introduced with visual step-by-step to uploading to other sites known as third party tools.
