DNA Day and Genealogy Articles

April 25th is DNA Day! View Ancestry DNA tools and features to assist your family research.

SideView Technology – This tool displays an ethnicity inheritance to show “the portions of each region you inherited from each parent”.

Chromosome Painter – As demonstrated in a past SGS presentation, the program graphically “paints” one’s DNA to show “the regions that make up your ethnicity estimate”.

Family Compare (link not included) – This feature compares your DNA results with DNA matches or others who share your Ancestry DNA results.

GREAT OR GRAND? (The Generation Confusion)
It’s easy to become confused about the correct term when referring to grandparents’ siblings, or one’s sibling’s grandchildren. Read this short article by Diane Haddad of FamilyTree to hopefully clear things up the technicalities.

This past February, MyHeritage added 19 million records (U.S. U.K. and Scotland). The records include Birth, Marriage, Death, Obituary, Voter Registration, Passenger and Prison information. Search a listing of the new collection HERE.
