The Leeds Method: Grouping DNA Matches to Identify Common Ancestors
Presenter: Dana Leeds

In this webinar, Dana Leeds will present an overview of the Leeds Method, demonstrate analysis of the resulting spreadsheet, and provide examples of case studies using this innovative tool. This method visually identifies groups of DNA matches who likely share common ancestors, does not require advanced computer skills nor advanced knowledge of genetic genealogy. And, since previous knowledge of the test taker’s family is not required, the Leeds Method is useful in adoption and unknown parentage cases. This method is not only a great first step when beginning to work with DNA matches but is also a great additional step to see DNA matches from a new perspective. It is also a great tool for investigating matches who do not have trees.
