A Note from Your Instructor

I began incorporating DNA into my genealogical research in 2014. I am 100% Irish on my maternal side and, at that point in time, only knew one of those ancestral lines. I now have found descendants of 9 of my 16 great-great-grandparents!!

I receive new matches on a daily basis and love trying to figure out where each puzzle piece fits into my family tree!

I would love to help you get started with your DNA journey!
