The Curious Case of Frank Button

When David Bunzel was a junior at the University of Wisconsin, he completed a project for a history class that led to the discovery that who he knew as his grandfather was not his mother’s father! This led to a 40-year quest to find Frank Button. With DNA and help from a DNA “angel” he was finally able to solve the puzzle. Come learn more from him about this story in the class!

Ancestry DNA Results

During RootsTech, Ancestry announced Thrulines. We'll explore what this new tool means for your DNA results. We'll also take a look at what to do now that you've received your DNA results. How do you interpret or make sense of all of that information? Pamela Brigham will be leading this class on Ancestry DNA Results.


Reunion - Customizing the Family View

When you open Reunion, the Family View is the first thing you see - does it work for you? Is the font too small? Would you like more or less information displayed? If the default doesn’t include information you need … you can use other built-in versions – or create your own. Martha Wallace will teach how to customize the appearance of the Family View.
