Presented by Ray Jones, Ph.D. Ancestry DNA has recently begun to test several new features that have some promise in assisting us in our family history research.  In this 90-minute workshop, we will briefly review the amazing potential that a focus on shared matches can generate in a large database of genetic tests and family trees (as Ancestry DNA recently reached 15 million testers).  Ancestry DNA is testing new features such as ThruLines, Tree Tags and Color-coded match groups and a new interface for sorting matches.  Individuals who have taken the Ancestry DNA test are the target audience for this workshop and should be ready to consider and discuss how these tools can be utilized in their research.
