DNA Down Under #DNADU

Have you taken a DNA test, and apart from seeing your ethnicity estimates, you wonder what’s next?  Have you tried to get in contact with a ‘DNA match’ and not got a response?  Have you found ‘surprise matches’ and are unsure what to do about that.  Or maybe you haven’t even taken a test, and wonder what all the fuss is about?  Or you’ve heard about DNA tests being used by authorities to catch criminals and it’s made you wary.  All of these aspects and plenty more will covered at Unlock the Past’s upcoming event “DNA Down Under“.

Blaine Bettinger, author of the best selling book “The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy”, heads a lineup of world-class genetic genealogists, who are touring Australia during August 2019, holding 1-day seminars in most cities, and culminating in a 3-day DNA-fest in Sydney.
