Tip 1: Cheryl sent this video along “for any of us using DNA”.
Mirror trees are a tool discussed in many online genetic genealogy groups as a methodology for figuring out how you are related to your AncestryDNA Matches. Join Crista Cowan and Angie Bush...
Two notable DNA experts discussing Mirror Trees in a 23-minute video. They use mirror trees attached their own trees to identify close relations. They both participate in Facebook pages where they recommend asking questions. They are Genetic Genealogy Tips and Techniques (Blaine Bettinger’s page) and AncestryDNA for Dummies (don’t be offended).
Tip 2: Another fun feature added to AncestryDNA is “Map View”. Just to the left of the Search Matches button on your match list. Click on Map View to see your matches located on a map. I found a 4th cousin match that lives in Bellingham. I better write a message.
Another way this could be used is to look for matches who live in a county where you want to research.
