YouTube Resources for DNA

An excellent way to learn about DNA and how to use it for genealogy is to simply watch video presentations from conferences around the world. They usually invite presenters who are both knowledgeable and creative in the way they cover material that can be highly complex. The Learning Center at Family Tree DNA is a good source, but this YouTube channel includes presentations made just this week at the Who Do You Think Are conference in England, the largest conference devoted to genealogy in the world.

Start with https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_mPClKX3ls for an outstanding overview, then choose from the many offerings available.
