A Matter of Standards: DNA and the Genealogical Proof Standard 

As a type of genealogical evidence, DNA is both unique and very mainstream. Despite its differences, we also need to apply tried and true genealogical criteria to the use of DNA test results in genealogy in order to meet the Genealogical Proof Standard. This begins with reasonably exhaustive research and incorporates good citation practices, thorough analysis and correlation of data, and resolution of conflicts, all of which are essential if we are to reach a sound conclusion.

Bring Your Family Tree and Find Your DNA Cousins Day
Members will be bringing a copy of their family trees. Walk around the room to see if other members share your ancestors. A tri-fold board is suggested with paternal and maternal names on the sides and a pedigree chart in the middle.
Exciting cousin connections are sure to be made! 

Additionally, Patricia Ann Kellner will present a mini-lecture about Ancestry's ThruLines and MyHeritage's Theory of Family Relativity. These tools will help you identify your DNA match connections.
