Replaces "Basic Autosomal DNA"

Welcome to the course for Applied Autosomal DNA.  We will be working with your AncestryDNA, FTDNA Family Finder results as well as 23andme information.

This is a course designed to help people get started using Autosomal DNA results to look for birth parents or to solve genealogy roadblocks. 

Lessons are posted once a week for the student to work with in a step-by-step format. An online forum is available for each lesson to ask questions and make suggestions. 

Knowing basic Excel or spreadsheet skills would be most helpful.  We highly recommend that anyone taking this class know the basics of Excel as well as working with computers and files. We support Windows and Mac systems; other operating systems are not supported, though the student will be able to use most of the material in other ways.  Knowing how to download materials from this class, how to save and rename files, how to set up folders in directories, how to work with computer files is essential, as this is not a course in basic computer skills.

**** Please Note: Those with Ashkenazi Jewish heritage will require other workarounds that what we may or may not be able to provide.  Analyses and assignments from the lessons may not be workable.  If you wish to focus on a non-Ashkenazi Jewish line, you will be able to complete assignments.
