“A Beginner’s Guide to GEDmatch"

The market for direct-to-consumer DNA tests continues to grow at a fast pace. Attendees will learn how to upload data from DNA testing companies to GEDmatch, a third-party database. In addition to a basic overview of genetic inheritance, the presentation will review a variety of free tools including DNA matching and comparison, ethnicity estimates, and a chromosome browser. Premium features such as matching segment and triangulation tools and their uses are also discussed.

Thomas Greve is a genealogical researcher and speaker from Falmouth. He holds a Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University and serves as president of Falmouth Genealogical Society. He is also managing director of Greve Associates, a research firm specializing in the use of DNA testing as evidence of identity and kinship.
