Surprise! The Lower DNA Scores May Be the Most Useful

Presenter: James Baker, PhD, CG®


This presentation offers examples to show that most genealogists will get the most benefit from lower scoring matches because those matches are the most useful for family tree areas where we usually need the most help. When we are looking to extend our family tree by finding new 4th and 5th cousins, we will be looking for cM scores from 40 down to 8. Examples show how to find these matches.
