Y-DNA

Currently, the National Huguenot Society does not accept Y-DNA.

That does not keep us from talking about this important genealogy topic/tool.

DNA alone will not get you anywhere because DNA is data. [A number]

The number needs to be matched to a record. [Triangulated]

There are three educational videos that do a great job of explaining the topic.

Enjoy. They are about 30 minutes each. They came to me from Zack Daugherty.

There is no shortage of education information about Genetic Genealogy and Surname Projects. A particularly recent video series (2019) on Y-DNA that he found and I agree to be very useful are in the following links.
