Our eight-week course covers the fundamentals of DNA testing for Family History

These sessions are aimed at those starting their DNA research. Those attending are expected to have access to results from a DNA test, or be waiting for results from one or more of the main companies, ie: 23andMe, Ancestry, FamilyTreeDNA or MyHeritage.

29 September - 17 November 2021

A combination of six pre-recorded sessions to watch and learn at your own time and pace and two live sessions, where there will be lots of time for Q&A. 

Pre-recorded sessions will be released each week for you to watch and the two live Q&A Zoom sessions are with your tutors Fiona Brooker and Michelle Patient in weeks four and eight. Courses are limited in size so that you'll have a chance to chat to the presenters.

There is a private Facebook group for attendees who have questions along the way and so you can chat with your fellow classmates as well as the tutors.
