Mirror Trees – What They Are and How to Use Them

Mirror trees are a useful genetic genealogy technique for determining common ancestors that you might share with your Ancestry DNA matches.  Mirror trees can be especially helpful for cases of adoption, misattributed parentage and family tree brick walls.  Learn what Ancestry mirror trees are, and how to use them.  This presentation will also cover other basic genetic genealogy techniques that are used in conjunction with mirror trees, including how to attach a family tree to your DNA kit, how to create family trees for your DNA matches that can be attached to your DNA kit, and how to convert an Ahnentafel chart to a file that can be uploaded to Ancestry.

This webinar will be presented by Mary Henderson, a professional genetic genealogist with Genetic Genealogy Research, LLC in Ann Arbor.  Mary has 45 years of experience with traditional, document-based genealogy, and 8 years of experience with genetic genealogy.  Mary uses genetic genealogy in conjunction with traditional genealogy research to help adoptees identify their biological parents, and to help people identify and solve misattributed parentage, and other brick walls, in their family trees.  She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the National Genealogical Society, and is a member of, and serves as Treasurer of, the Genealogical Society of Washtenaw County.
