Description:
This class will demystify auto-clustering, by demonstrating how it is simply a more visual method of analyzing shared matches. After briefly overviewing the Shared centiMorgan Project, case studies will be used to show how auto-clustering can be used to analyze shared matches - the primary technique genealogists have used for years. Strategies to auto-cluster in the major platforms will be discussed.
