    **About our program**
    Whenever we approach a genealogical question, we need a plan before starting our research, which can lead to greater success. Janice Lovelace will share step-by-step instructions on how to build a research plan for DNA testing. She will present a case study that touches on the points in her presentation: begin with identifying the focus of your use of DNA testing and creating a research question and hypothesis. Ask yourself what type of DNA tests will answer your research question/hypothesis and identify which relatives you should test. This session will show you how to build a plan, how you might want to answer potential research questions or hypotheses, how DNA testing ties into your paper and/or digital family trees and, finally, how to analyze your findings and where to go from there. Whether you are just beginning your genealogy research or have years of experience, you will easily see the many benefits of creating a research plan.
