This is going to be a short post, but I wanted to be sure that if you have tested at AncestryDNA that you have a chance to download this guide. Blaine Bettinger of The Genetic Genealogist has put together an easy to follow 6 part series in his awesome Facebook group Genetic Genealogy Tips & Techniques on how to go from "new match" to "known cousin" with AncestryDNA results. He combined all the posts in one PDF download that he has graciously allowed others to make available for download.
