Learn to Do the DNA Step-by-Step at Your DNA Guide–the Academy

One-time DNA classes and webinars can kick-start your DNA education, but they don’t provide sustained support. Truly successful DNA learning requires TIME to process and PRACTICE to master the concepts. You need to build on your knowledge, with step-by-step instruction and practice. You need help when you get stuck–and sometimes a quick expert peek at your work.

Your DNA Guide—the Academy offers a more extensive, hands-on approach to a truly effective, confident genetic genealogy education. My students find DNA answers! Like missing birth relatives or ancestors—or at least connections that will eventually lead to them.

AWESOME as Diahan always is! I always learn something new. I continue to be in awe of her kindness in teaching skills. She encourages and motivates novices through experts with such style and grace. Her knowledge base is phenomenal.
