Take a deeper dive into Y-DNA with genetic genealogist Diahan Southard. She has made it her life’s mission to be the expert in understanding how DNA can help us with our family history research. Diahan really knows her stuff, you won’t want to miss this one.

In this episode, Diahan took my research question/problem (the mystery of a missing great great grandfather) using the Y-DNA of one of my cousins and broke it down so we all can learn more about what is in our Y-DNA results and how it can help us with our genealogy. 

We also took a look at the autosomal DNA (like you would find at AncestryDNA) for comparison. 

Lastly, we talked about what the next steps should be to help resolve this family history mystery.
