AtoZChallenge Learning DNA for Genealogists

Back in 2017 I posted on Instagram, “Thinking I need to learn more about DNA instead of playing with it”. Over a year has passed by since then. What I have discovered is that there is always more to learn about using DNA for family history.

One way to increase your knowledge about how to use DNA is to read DNA books.  DNA for Genealogists by Kerry Farmer is published by Gould Genealogy. At the writing of this post, it is up to its 4th edition. As noted on Kerry Farmer’s website, this book covers “how genealogists can use DNA testing to enrich their family history research. This book explains DNA in simple terms and discusses the various tests available.” The softcover book is currently priced at $15.00 and the eBook for $9.95.

  1. Great post Fran and very timely. I have this book but haven’t even opened it yet. There’s so much I need to learn about DNA. Thanks for the reminder. I’ll get it read before the conference #AtoZ

    1. Thank you Jennifer for the kind comments on this post. I find that this DNA stuff takes concentration and time. Two things that I feel short of rushing from one task to another. Fran
