In association with the Lamm Jewish Library of Australia 
 
2017
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
AGM
When: Sunday 17 September 2017 – 2.15pm
Following the AGM we will be giving a presentation
Understanding Autosomal DNA!
by Mary Kozy
This talk is an address given by Mary Kozy at the 2016 International Jewish Genealogical Conference in Seattle.  DNA testing has become an increasingly important tool in the family historian’s toolkit. Autosomal DNA testing has become very popular and with the addition of new individuals to the major companies’ databases every day, a major resource for solving tough genealogical research problems. In this presentation, you will learn:
 
the basics of DNA
- what autosomal DNA results can (and cannot) tell you
important considerations about who to test (i.e., creating a test plan)
- what tools exist to use in interpreting your results
- about the reliability of ethnicity results
 
Examples will be given showing results from all three major testing
companies (Family Tree DNA, AncestryDNA and 23andMe), as well as screenshots
from third-party tools. This is a great presentation for those who know little about
autosomal testing, as well as those who have been tested and aren’t really
sure what to do with their results.
