Some things to remember when starting to work with your DNA matches:

  • start by figuring out your closest matches first
  • keep track of who you figure out and “how you know who they are”
  • don’t try and figure out everyone at once–start with the easiest matches
  • have your paper pedigree handy and as complete as you have it
  • DNA does not replace traditional methods and sources

You can see more about working with your AncestryDNA matches in my webinars.

  1. Oh such good advice. You’ve just helped my neice & myself in this category. Will purchase books to learn about this subject first. Not to expect too much too soon.
