This course is based on the publication "Guide to genetic testing and genetic genealogy" by Baline Bettinger, and will include investigation of genetic genealogy basics and common misconceptions. This course is heavily weighted towards genealogy with little emphasis on the scientific aspects of DNA or genetic engineering.
A one term course with a duration of 8 weeks and divided into two parts: The first 6 weeks will be based on tutorials, followed by 2 weeks of workshops where members will have the opportunity to practice what they have learnt in the tutorials. Members are asked to bring their laptops/iPads or any other electronic device to class particularly for the workshops as these segments will be hands-on. If you do not have your own electronic device, you may be able to use one that is provided by U3A for classroom use only, if one is available at the time.
