On National DNA Day, Andrew kicked off a new series of Treasures "Livestreaminars" - part DIY family history, woven together with music and stories from Treasures in My Chest. The series is free through his YouTube channel, and each one offers a tip on family research and using DNA evidence. While each episode is loosely connected to the book, those starting into family research will certainly learn something useful from each video.
April 25, 2020 - National DNA Day. The first episode offers an unusual silver lining of "Life in the time of corona" for aspiring family historians, some tips on grouping your DNA matches around each of your four grandparents, and a live performance of "Web of Mystery." April 25th is National DNA Day loosely because of the publication of the actual structure of DNA in 1953 and completion of sequencing the human genome in 2003.
May 9, 2020 - "Tracing Our Mothers Back in Time" focused on our ancestral line of mothers - the matrilineal line. Some useful tips and advice from what I've learned researching my "Hourglass Women and Miracle Threads," and a live performance of "Anniversary (2,000 Years Ago)."
NEXT UP: May 23, 2020 at 11am EDT. On Memorial Day weekend, I'll share some stories and tips on researching our ancestors who gave all in service of their country. I'll play a song or two from the new project, share a little advice from what I learned, and take a few questions too. It's free at my YouTube channel.
