An Unexpected DNA Discovery

Join Zoom Meeting


Meeting ID: 842 4460 6027

Passcode: 536771

About our speaker: Dana Leeds started researching her family tree in 1998. While working on a case of unknown parentage in 2018, she created the innovative genetic genealogy tool known as the Leeds method. It quickly sorts DNA matches into clusters allowing the user to see which matches belong together.

About our program:  The background of William Emmitt Hunter was unknown before his 1910 Oklahoma marriage. His application for Social Security reported his parents’ names but they could not be found. DNA revealed his name at birth and multiple marriages, divorces and another alias. This case study highlights the Leeds Method, Shared DNA Matches, and tradition genealogy skills needed to solve his family mystery.

  1. I unfortunately wasn’t able to attend the webinar this evening 3/10 on Researching Irish Records. Was there a handout available that you could send me? Thanks.
