“DNA Painter” – Jason Kruski (via ZOOM)

July 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Our July 11 meeting and program will be a virtual program on Zoom.
Jason Kruski will tell us about DNA Painter. Jason has given two previous presentations for us and we are glad to have him back. Jason Kruski has been utilizing genetic genealogy to further his family tree ever since his first home DNA test, thirteen years ago. He is the author of A Guide to Chicago and Midwestern Polish American Genealogy and is a speaker on the subjects of DNA and Polish genealogical research. His website is https://kruskigenealogy.webs.com .

You have purchased a DNA test. Now what? How can I use it to further my family tree and help break down brick walls? DNA Painter is a new tool that helps its users merge genealogical data from the paper trail of known relatives to help find connections among others who share cM of DNA with you. Learn more about how to apply your DNA results with this presentation on how to use the latest technology to help create a richer family tree. DNA Painter is a website for genealogists and family history enthusiasts who have taken an autosomal DNA test.

Interpreting test results can be a challenge. DNA Painter helps by providing a platform where you can:
• Take stock of what you already know about your family line by building or importing a tree.
• Use the amount of DNA you share with matches (measured in centiMorgans) to look at how you might be related to them with interactive tools.
• Try chromosome mapping to visualize the actual segments of DNA you share with matches to deduce which parts of your DNA you inherited from specific ancestors in your tree.
