Instructor:  Elizabeth Handler (see below)

Find out what you're made of. Everyone seems to have had their DNA tested! But what does it mean? Learn how to better understand your DNA test results and why they're different for different family members and from different testing companies. And who knew you had so many fourth to sixth cousins? We can explain that, too. You'll get an overview of the different kinds of DNA tests and testing companies, ethnicity results, cousin connections, and privacy concerns. Whether you've taken a DNA test or are just curious, join us to learn more about this rapidly expanding field.
