Don't Let Love Get Lost – Preserve it Using DNA
If they are alive, have them take a DNA test. If they are no longer with us, it’s usually possible to find a relative who can take the test instead. (We can help you with that if you need it.) When you are tracing the family of one ancestor, it is also a good idea to know the DNA of their spouse. Chances are you can learn more about grandpa through exploring grandma’s records and connections. Each DNA test you add to your genetic family tree gives you a better picture of your family. And it preserves your family’s DNA, genealogy, and legacy of love for generations to come. (images from [more...]

Tracing the Tribe: The Jewish Genealogy Blog: New DNA Project ...
Since many Puerto Ricans do not know that they may have Jewish lineage, she opened the project to include anyone who knows or suspects they have Mallorcan ancestry. "I can use the non-Puerto Rican DNA results as a sort of comparison. Maybe…," she adds. Seham hopes to turn this research into a Master’s thesis, but the topic is raising much skepticism among Jews and Puerto Ricans. Therefore, she has to prove that Mallorcan Jews existed in Puerto Rico, and then find their descendants. Initially, she wanted to trace the early Jewish presence in Puerto Rico, but quickly realized the enormity [more...]

DNA Testing, Vital for Genealogy?
Test should also explain that research in your family tree, whether is true or not. One kind of DNA test for genealogy that is available to the public is the mtDNA Test. mtDNA is a kind of DNA which is passed down by your mother to all her children and this does not get mixed with other DNAs. Therefore, it is an important determinant of good in front of your mother since his is the same mitochondrial DNA, which is also the same mitochondrial DNA from the mother, and is again the same thing his mother, and so on. Take a long time, for it can be changed so if two people are suitable for mtDNA, [more...]

I should also mention DNA testing for genealogy. The advancement of study into human DNA has revealed that DNA can be used as a tool for determining ancestry. It turns out that DNA is passed down through the generations, leaving telltale markers of family relationships that can extend back a thousand years. A simple DNA test can show whether two people are related, if they are descended from a common ancestor, and can even give clues about future potential health risks. Services such as 23andMe, Ancestry.com, and many others offer DNA testing for a fee. Do you have something to say about [more...]

Mitochondrial DNA Genealogy
The mitochondrial DNA genealogy is the study of a person’s mother’s family line of maternal ancestors. This DNA is passed down from mother to each of her children exactly as she has it, with no mutations, except in the very rare instances. Because of the traditions in our society of the wife taking her husband’s last name, a surname genealogy trace of the female line of the family tree is more difficult. On the flip side, since this DNA strand is more stable than the Y DNA, more conclusive results can be determined for the testing of it. The mt-DNA is sometimes referred to as the Full [more...]

Another important reason to have a DNA ethnicity test is to ascertain your legal rights.

But many individuals have a DNA ethnicity test merely because they wish to learn more regarding their ancestry.

For those who feel they have Native American heritage, or come from a long line of tribal families, DNA testing can help to determine their genetic background in relation to the Native American genes. Although this testing can help people learn more about their lineage, the modern tribes of today usually require that people have at least one grandparent or great-grandparent who was Native American. If people cannot prove this, regardless of DNA testing, many tribes will reject them nonetheless.
