The conference will focus on how to find your most elusive ancestors using both traditional genealogy and DNA research. Advance your understanding of how to find ancestors who were poor and those who lived in colonial North Carolina. Learn about researching records that were kept for slave insurance and expand your research boundaries to cross borders. Learn how to use autosomal DNA to find missing ancestors and how to make Y-DNA work for you. Expand your understanding of DNA triangulation and learn about DNA Painter, a fun and exciting new online tool.
