Video Tutorials

The video tutorials are designed to demonstrate how to use the Genealogical DNA Analysis Tool. It is recommended that the user experiment with the app before beginning a database in earnest. Even after starting a permanent database, use the File-Backup and File-Restore functions to test how various options work.
