Brian: It depends on who is testing. Some just want to see their ethnic percentages and are not interested in tracing their ancestry. Others attempt to track all matches. 

I have used DNA matches to confirm my paper research, and I have confirmed a linkage by DNA that I haven't found documents to prove yet. It encourages me that I am on the right track. :)

Don't get discouraged. Your DNA work may help someone else confirm their parentage.

While I like many other students await the final DNA course I would like to hear from those of us who have used DNA matches as a way of discovering more about our ancestry and even finding people you had no knowledge were in some way related to you. Have you had any success? I must admit that my matches have been distant cousin and sadly had either no tree or one with only a few people on the tree.

I still think DNA tests can help but just wondering if my experience is common.

cheers

Hi Cheryl

Thanks for that information. I am sure there are quite a few fellow students who are looking forward to enjoying the final DNA course especially how helpful the last course was.

cheers

Hi Cheryl

i am sure I am not the only student waiting for the final DNA course to complete the DNA certificate but I think it is fair to say we are all anxious to get our teeth into it and finish our DNA meal.

Yes, I have a big appetite and would like more Scottish and Italian courses for dessert.


Trust you and your mates are all safe and well.

Cheers

Brian
