GEDmatch enables comparison of DNA kits from different testing companies. Genealogist Rita McCaughey will present an interactive session showing how to use GEDmatch tools to help with genealogy research,starting from what to do once you have uploaded your autosomal DNA data. Taking you on a journey of discovery, from the simple to the more complex, she will show how it is possible to open up new possibilities for exploring your family tree, including how to focus on geographical areas. The techniques covered aim to help you break down some brick walls in your research.

Rita has been researching family history for 30 years and joins us from Australia where she works in the IT sector. She has a Diploma of Family History from the University of Tasmania, a Certificate in Genealogical Research from the Society of Australian Genealogists, and is currently studying online with the University of Strathclyde. She can regularly be found helping people with Tyrone roots in the Around the Heather’s Edge group.
