I am very pleased to see that Legacy Family Tree Webinars has two DNA webinars this week.
"Weaving DNA Test Results into a Proof Argument" (free for non-subscribers through February 28, 2017) presented by Karen Stanbary, is labeled as part of the webinar library's Board for Certification of Genealogists collection:
This lecture illustrates how to integrate each element of the Genealogical Proof Standard in a proof argument that relies heavily on autosomal DNA test results to answer a relationship research question. The examples are drawn from "Rafael Arriaga, A Mexican Father in Michigan: Autosomal DNA Helps Identify Paternity." National Genealogical Society Quarterly (June 2016).
"Finding Missing Persons With DNA Testing" (free for non-subscribers through March 1, 2017) presented by Diahan Southard:
Do you have an adoption in your line, or are you adopted yourself? Do you have an ancestor who just refuses to be found? DNA testing can be a very powerful tool to help fill in the blanks in your family tree. But how helpful can it really be when you know absolutely nothing about the person you are trying to find? As it turns out, with the right techniques and a careful search, your DNA might be able to tell you more than you think.
