Join Mary Henderson of the Association of Professional Genealogists for an introduction to DNA testing for genealogy purposes.  After a brief overview of basic genetics, Mary will discuss the types of DNA tests available—autosomal, Y, X and mitochondrial—and provide an overview of DNA testing companies including,, 23&me and My Heritage.  Finally, using an example of the DNA test result page provided by each company, Mary will offer tips on how to navigate the findings.

Mary Henderson has 45 years of experience with traditional, document-based genealogy, and 6 years of experience with genetic genealogy.  She volunteers her services to adoptees seeking their birth parents and is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists.
