Centre for Lifelong Learning

'Tracing Your Ancestors Using DNA' Book Launch. 

Graham Holton, lead Tutor on the MSc Genealogical Studies Postgraduate Programme and editor of the recently published book 'Tracing Your Ancestors Using DNA. A Guide For Family Historians' will host a book launch with fellow contributors; Alasdair Macdonald the Lead Tutor for the Diploma level, John Cleary and Michelle Leonard, both MSc alumni and Iain McDonald, currently an Honorary Research Fellow with the Programme.  

The book launch will feature short talks from the contributors on genetic genealogy, a complex and quite often a difficult subject for traditional genealogists to understand. The book offers insight into the subject for novices who are keen to understand and interpret test results and use them to help answer genealogical questions which cannot be answered by documentary evidence alone. It will also appeal to those with some experience in the field because it places the practical application of genetic genealogy within a wider context, highlighting its role as a genealogical tool and suggesting how it can be made more effective.
