As we continue our A-Z posts for the month of April, where we are highlighting some of the 225+ genealogy and research courses offered at The International Institute of Genealogical Studies, we would like to focus on our DNA-related courses. These courses go beyond which tests to take, or comparing ethnicity percentages, to discover how to use your DNA test results for deeper genealogical research analysis.
D is for DNA
The use of DNA results, in combination with genealogical documentation, has expanded the field of genealogy research with many more options to explore. The International Institute of Genealogical Studies has developed a certificate program to assist you in understanding a variety of topics related to both DNA and genealogy. We are pleased to offer the following courses and certificate, both for those new to DNA research and to genealogists who are looking to build their DNA expertise.

Historical and genealogically-related records are important for building our ancestors’ life stories, however, DNA adds another layer of analysis and can confirm our research. For family historians, DNA test results may identify lost cousins, or solve long-time genealogy brick walls. For professional genealogists, the use of DNA research continues to grow, and expertise in the field of DNA will surely be a beneficial asset to add to the services you are able to offer to your clients.
