          Question: My new Co-Admin and 2 possible new Co-Admins are signed up for the Webinar which is tomorrow..This is for my largish Lower Delmarva group.

          Should I sign up too in case something is gone over that I do not understand or will it be available afterwards to look at?

          Thanks

            We should have the recording up by Wednesday afternoon. However, attending live is the best option if you want to ask questions. Elise usually does Q&A until all have had their questions answered. :-)

                    Hi,

                    The Y-SNP Webinar is this week.

                    FREE Webinar - Advanced Topics at Family Tree DNA, Part 1 Continued: Y-DNA SNPs & Haplogroups
                    Time: Tuesday, February 4, 2014 12pm Central (6pm GMT)
                    Registration: http://bit.ly/1a90coK

                    This webinar is a continuation of the advanced Y-DNA webinar presented live on January 28. In the previous webinar, we focused on Y-DNA STRs. In this new webinar, we'll focus on Y-DNA SNPs and Haplogroups. Topics include the Y-DNA Haplotree, options for "deep-clade" and individual SNP testing, SNP discovery projects and the draft Y-DNA tree.

                    If you missed the Advanced Y-DNA STR webinar or the Results Explained Y-DNA webinar, we recommend viewing the recordings of those before attending this presentation. Following are the links to the recordings:

                          Hi,

                          It will be ready when Elise is back home in Florida and has a bit of time to decompress from the RootsTech conference. :-) It was a completely awesome week... but I am sure she needs a bit of down time.
