The Board for Certification of Genealogists, better known as the BCG, has created a great resource for genetic genealogy, including books, blogs, lists, forums, classes, institutes and webinars.
If you want to learn about how DNA assists genealogists, there is a plethora of resources available today. Thanks to the BCG for putting this information in one place.
I love their opening statement: “We can’t stick our heads in the sand anymore.” Genetic genealogy is a fait accompli today. It’s here to stay and every genealogist should have at least a very basic understanding of what it can do and how.
For a short, basic, easy to understand introduction, my “4 Kinds of DNA for Genetic Genealogy” is one of the most visited articles on my website.
I receive a small contribution when you click on some of the links to vendors in my articles. This does NOT increase the price you pay but helps me to keep the lights on and this informational blog free for everyone. Please click on the links in the articles or to the vendors below if you are purchasing products or DNA testing.
Thank you so much.
