Difficult genealogy questions require the patience for and the use of strategies and tools made especially for inquiring minds. Once you have your DNA match results, discover how you can make the most of the information to move closer to finding the answers to your most challenging family tree questions.

Researchers tackling biological relatives for adoptees, uncertain paternity when genealogical documents dry up, or discover a surprising test result, benefit from proven methods to overcome difficult obstacles.
From there, a variety of tools can increase your chances of finding the most sought after answers for relationships on your family tree. Genetic Affairs has tools to help cluster DNA matches to reveal patterns of relationships. Borland Genetics tools help researchers reconstruct the DNA of their ancestors, allowing them to find even more matches and paths to common ancestors. GEDMatch, has a suite of tools that conduct powerful analysis with a few keystrokes if a genealogist is patient enough to try.
While these techniques and tools seem overwhelming, four genetic genealogists help simplify the research process in this online genetic genealogy conference. See and interact with these genealogy experts throughout the event, during their live sessions, during breaks, and via a final “Ask Us Anything” Q&A Panel Discussion. Explore your DNA with confidence, using the best tips and tricks from these experienced genealogists.
