The Genetic Genealogist | Article Review: “Bio Science: Genetic ...

Based on her research in this area, Dr. Nelson writes about the complex interpretation of the results of genetic genealogy testing by African-Americans and black British.  Rather than completely altering their preconceived biographical narratives based on the results of testing, many people struggle to mesh genetic results with these narratives.  From the abstract: “While there is some acquiescence to genetic thinking about ancestry, and by implication, ‘race’, among African-American and black British consumers of genetic genealogy testing, test-takers also adjudicate [more...]

Using Genetic Genealogy to Discover Royal Relatives - Genealogy ...

The DNA testing revealed that Mr. Holland is a long-lost relative of a ruling family in Cameroon, West Africa. In November, Mr. Holland will take his American family, including his 79 year old mother, to Cameroon, to visit with his African family. How exciting!This is one example of how genetic genealogy can be used. Genetic genealogy looks at a select number of DNA markers, (instead of examining the entire genome, or the information used for paternity tests). In general, there are two ways to go. The company offering services in genetic genealogy may look at the Y-chromosome, which is passed [more...]

Realize that in time, we will work out how best to do this, just as we did when DNA testing for genealogy was first born. We are pioneers again, and sharing ideas is the way to conquer this task. 8. Understand that Family Tree DNA and 23andMe do not have the space to post large chunks of our lineage. Their purpose is to find us matches. I'm only speculating, but the arrangements for sharing lineage on FF (surname lists and/or your GEDCOM) could get tweaked at some point, or we could get more creative with how we use it. For example: List your surnames under SURNAME; give your URL for the [more...]

Why You Should Have A DNA Ethnicity Test

Another important reason to have a DNA ethnicity test is to ascertain your legal rights. As in the case of many Native Americans of mixed ethnic backgrounds, establishing the fact that they really are a member of the tribe might entitle them to some hefty monetary benefits along with additional legal rights that are afforded to Native American tribes because they act as their own government. But many individuals have a DNA ethnicity test merely because they wish to learn more regarding their ancestry. In this day and age having a mixed heritage is something to be proud of instead of [more...]

Book Review: Trace Your Roots With DNA

Trace Your Roots With DNA by Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak is a nice book for an overview of the field of genetic genealogy testing.

Beyond that, Megan has a nice section on starting a group project and has information about where you can locate others in your same haplogroup or surname. Lots of good information here.

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...]

Ancestry – Native American Genealogy & DNA Testing - Indian Blankets

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. Many people are just truly interested in their family’s heritage and background, and may also [more...]
