VCGS DNA Special Interest Group – Leah Larkin @ On Zoom
Jun 18 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
What Are The Odds? (WATO)

What Are the Odds? (WATO) is a revolutionary tool for “targets” with unknown parentage (or grandparentage). It lets you incorporate shared autosomal DNA data from multiple matches and multiple testing companies into a tree-based analysis to determine where the target most likely fits into the tree. Armed with this information, you can better economize on your research efforts and additional DNA testing. It’s a game-changer!

Leah Larkin earned her Ph.D. in biology from the University of Texas at Austin, where she used DNA to study the relationships among different species. She has worked in both academia and scientific publishing and applies those research skills daily to solving genealogical questions using DNA. Her background makes her uniquely qualified to analyze your DNA results to reveal your family history.


[This meeting will be held online with Zoom and an invitation will be sent out to the VCGS DNA SIG via email about 12 hours prior to the meeting. If you are not already on the email list you may contact the webmaster at webmaster@venturacogensoc.org to be added.]

We will offer an opportunity for further discussion or questions about the What Are The Odds tool following Leah Larkin’s presentation in June. Recognizing that CVGS also had WATO as a topic recently, we’ll also open the floor to genetic genealogy questions in general.
