  • Centralize their point of contact with their matches from multiple testing companies.
  • Familiarize them with Google Forms for tracking information, including providing a link to a free bonus form template.
  • Provide a brief overview of how to use the power of Google Earth in their genetic genealogy.
  • Provide an introduction to spreadsheets.
  • Review valuable third party tools and their contributions to the organizing effort.
