A good place to start would be to read the chapter on "Phylogeny
Reconstruction", by DL Swofford and GJ Olsen in _Molecular
Systematics_, DM Hillis and C Moritz, eds., Sinauer Press, 1990.  This
has a very nice description of phylogenetic methods, and provides
information that will be useful for people using morphological or
other characters as well as molecular data.  It might be better to
read this and some other literature on phylogenetic reconstruction
before you contact Swofford -- I think it might make things easier for
both of you.
