Session Topics 
Yes, DNA Testing is for Every Genealogist!
No matter your genealogical experience, DNA testing can help you further your understanding of your family story. Discover the key concepts for each type of DNA testing to help you make the most of your results and extend your knowledge of the family history.
 
Company Tools You Need to Know About
There are more companies offering DNA testing for the genealogist than ever before. This has created significant innovation at each testing company as they all try to make DNA testing results easy for their subscribers to understand. Learn how to use the tools provided by the testing companies to make genealogical research breakthroughs.  
 
Pro Tools You Need to Know About
Find out about the essential toolbox that the pros use to move past brick walls for their clients. There are some tools that are "tried and true" and other new tools that have been developed by third parties to help genealogists make the most out of the information provided by the DNA testing companies. 
 
Communicating With Your DNA Matches Responsibly and Ethically
Genealogy is a "team sport" and in the world of DNA testing we are reliant on information that our matches are willing to share with us. We will discuss tips for communicating with matches, for asking others to test and how to deal with potential surprises that may come up as a result of taking a DNA test.
