Did you get your autosomal DNA results from any or all of the 4 testing companies? Do you have tens of thousands of matches that they tell you are close relatives, only to find that they don’t share a surname or town in common? Confused? Frustrated? You are not alone.

So, take a deep breath and join us in understanding your results of ethnicity and matches; how to prioritize them, and reduce the thousands of matches to numbers you can research and maybe find keys to expanding your genealogy family tree.

This webinar is for beginners and others who are just stuck or don’t know what to do next. Maybe you need a restart? Gil Bardige will share his processes and techniques to prioritize matches to get organized and feel like you can accomplish something and know what to do next. In the end, you will be able to say, “Now I understand, I get it, I know what to do.”

Gil Bardige has been a genealogist for over 40 years with more than 15 years of experience in DNA/Genetic Genealogy.  He manages three Y-DNA projects at FamilyTreeDNA as a Volunteer Administrator and loves to help people manage their expectations and begin to remove confusion from the DNA results whether it’s Y-DNA, mtDNA or Autosomal DNA.  He has spoken at dozens of international conferences and local events including the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Boston.
