 While every person’s situation is unique, these ABCs are more advanced, key strategies you can use to help investigate your match list in order to identify a particular match, or to break down a genealogy brick wall. Ask the Wife (dividing genetic networks); Bottoms Up (working from the bottom of your match list); and Cousin Categories (determining which kinds of cousins might answer your question).

Diahan teaches internationally, consults with leading testing companies and forensics experts.
