Back to our Past 2020

Presented By: Eamon Healy

Synopsis of talk – AncestryDNA is a fantastic tool that can help take your family history research to new levels, but it can be daunting initially. Before you dive in, it helps to have a good understanding of what the test is, what it will provide you with and how to integrate DNA results with your family tree and other sources. In this session, Eamon Healy from Ancestry ProGenealogists will cover these key areas and more.
