Understanding DNA Ethnicity Estimates
Learn how testing companies create ethnicity estimates, the accuracy of the estimates, and ways to use them in your research. Together we will compare and contrast ethnicity estimates at the big five testing companies (23andMe, AncestryDNA, Family Tree DNA, LivingDNA, and MyHeritage) and discuss their limitations and uses. This will be a live webinar presented at Northland Library only.
