Award-winning author and instructor Blaine Bettinger joined us on the show to talk about working with DNA matches in genealogical research. Working with DNA – and DNA matches in particular – can be a daunting prospect.
This is especially true for researchers who are new to DNA testing and working with their DNA results. Even seasoned researchers can get thrown by seeming random DNA matches!
We also spent some time discussing false positive matches as well as the recent changes Ancestry has made to its DNA matching threshold.
