Ontdek je Roots - DNA-onderzoek

Who am I, where do my ancestors come from? What have they experienced, what were their lives like? Many people ask themselves these kinds of questions, but it is quite a job to find out how your family tree works. During this workshop series by Rotterdam Library and the CBG|Center for Family History, we will help you research your family history. During the workshop special attention will be paid to DNA research.

It's important to start by asking questions of your older relatives. Because a lot of information from the past 100 years is still protected due to privacy legislation, you will have to bridge those years. You can search approximately from your great-grandparents in various online databases. Which source should you go to, what can you find there and how do you best search? All these types of questions will be answered per theme in the series of workshops that the CBG|Center for Family History will give.

DNA research

Getting stuck with your family history research can be frustrating. Sometimes there are no historical sources from which you can get information. Then there is always the option for DNA testing. Then you are the source to further discover where your ancestors came from.

But which DNA test is best to do? There are many different providers and what information do they provide exactly? Sometimes it is not so easy to identify which test provider is the best. In this workshop we explain how DNA testing works and provide tips on which providers are reliable and what the results of a test can and cannot tell you about your ancestors.

You are welcome if you have not taken a DNA test at all, are considering taking a DNA test, or if you have questions about the results of your DNA test.
