Family History Academy - Using Gephi to Analyze & Visualize Family History and DNA Networks
Network exploration and visualization tools offer exciting possibilities for exploring ancestral connections and making sense of DNA matches. In this hands-on workshop with Kimberly Powell, we'll explore the basics of network analysis, including using network visualization software as a tool to help us explore relationships, connections, and clusters (networks, FAN clubs) in our family history and DNA data. Through short demos followed by implementation periods, we'll practice using the free, open-source Gephi software to create cluster networks from both documentary and DNA data. Sample data sets will be provided, so we have a common framework for exploration and discussion. The session will be recorded and available for two weeks so you can revisit and apply the same principles to your project and data.
