Exploring your Scottish genealogy using Y-DNA

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Advances in Next Generation Sequencing technologies has enabled the origin and development of Y chromosome lineages to be explored as never before. This presentation will discuss latest research findings primarily focusing on Scottish male lineages including prominent clans and families. The presentation will break down and explain technical jargon so that test takers are in a place to apply testing strategies and analysis techniques to their own research. Questions that will be addressed include: When is a DNA match a relevant genealogical match? I don’t match the same surname, does that mean there has been an illegitimacy? and, How do I explore the medieval origins of my lineage?
