DNA Case Study
August 14 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM$15.00 – $25.00
Using your DNA results to confirm traditional records.
Death certificates are a well-known source of information for the genealogist but they always come with the warning that the information is second hand. The person who knew the information best is never the informant.
Autosomal DNA matching has provided us with a perfect tool to validate the information on a death certificate. In this case study, we will look at how DNA matches can be used to confirm the parents and children on a death certificate.
Greg will be using details of his own GG Grandmother Bridget Lennane. Her death certificate has a correction to the parents and all of the children were listed as illegitimate. Making quite a case to study.
