Spending some time this weekend updating the spreadsheets I've created to track the DNA matches for myself, Eileen and mom and dad. There is a lot of data to track, but have had some success in making connections. Kitty Cooper's blog has a lot of good tools for DNA research.
Finding out that the autosomal matching works much better if you have a fairly extensive family tree. Without it, it is nearly impossible to find the matches just from a few surnames listed. Also, find that 23andMe is a bit clunky in their family tree. Having more success with those who have a tree at Ancestry or somewhere else.
Will be sharing some of the stories in a later post.
