Presenter: Vivs Laliberte, moderator of Genetic Genealogy Tips & Techniques

YDNA is being used to construct a “Tree of Mankind” showing our interrelatedness going back 210,000 years. Every man living today can be traced back to “YDNA Adam. In a similar manner a “Tree of Womankind” is being developed using mtDNA, which traces every person (man and woman) through their maternal lines, back to a single woman who lived about as long ago. Learn how you can find your families’ place in these trees.
