Well done Margaret. I knew it was a good idea. I'm retired now but a long time ago somebody said don't ever find ways of improving your own job as you will have to adapt to change. However if you can see good ways of other people improving their jobs you will get the credit and they will have to make the changes. I hope this thread runs and runs.

Here’s a couple of blog articles by Donna Rutherford that I found incredibly helpful when I started with DNA research:

A Beginner's Adventure in Genetic Genealogy (a work in progress) by Paddy Waldron (29/1/2019); a bit more advanced imo is his critique of current methodology "Measuring the length, relevance and rarity of matching segments" from 2014. A great deal for anyone to digest...
