Who Are You?  

A Focus on Genetic Genealogy Week 2 of 2 at Highlands Ranch Library 

  • Are you ready to add DNA testing to your genealogy tool kit?
  • Are you curious about what you can learn from the different types of DNA tests?
  • Have all the popular genealogy TV shows and ads intrigued you to learn more about how to dig into your DNA or family history?

This 2 Part Series will help you learn how you can discover and preserve your own family’s genealogy.  

Understand your motivations for getting started so that your actions, money and time spent align with your goals and final intended outcomes.  Discover how DNA testing (genetic genealogy) has become a major puzzle piece to help solve family mysteries.

This series will provide an overview of the 3 main types of DNA tests that are useful for genetic genealogy, including Y DNA, mitochondrial DNA and autosomal DNA. Learn how each test works, what research questions each test can answer, which inheritance patterns are followed, and how to decide who to test.

A foundation in ethical and legal issues will be provided, including Genetic Genealogy Standards and how DNA testing fits into the Genealogical Proof Standard.

Audience participation and Q&A is welcome.



The course will be taught by Deena Coutant. Deena is a full-time professional researcher and genetic genealogist.  She is passionate about connecting the past, present and future generations, through stories, photos, or by uncovering the DNA of those ancestors who were previously lost to history. She provides strategies to help her clients successfully discover, celebrate, share and properly preserve their families’ legacies, through both traditional genealogical research and DNA testing. Deena offers a unique blend of DNA and genealogy services through her company, DigiDeena Family Heritage Solutions.
