DNA news this past week

When you are home and sick in bed what better to do than catch up on reading your favorite DNA blogs? So I decided over today’s bowl of chicken soup to make a page listing the blogs I like to read. It is listed under Resources or click the image on the left.

Also I feel guilty since I am so behind on my own blogging when there is so much news to report. So here are my favorite recent reads to replace my lack of posts:

Legacy Tree Genealogists is releasing their free grandparent/grandchild DNA mapping chartmaker tomorrow, Monday (yes I helped, yes the code is based on my mappers, yes I am an affiliate)
https://www.legacytree.com/blog/chromosome-mapping-grandparent-inheritance-charts

Roberta Estes has a new post on segment size and false matches in her terrific concepts series
https://dna-explained.com/2017/01/19/concepts-segment-size-legitimate-and-false-matches/

She also gives the new 23andme ancestry timeline feature the thumbs down. I do not completely agree with her assessment but as my own post on this is unfinished, perhaps read hers …

  1. I love the grandparent mapper! As I could only test my maternal grandmother it helps me see the parts I have from my maternal grandfather! Thanks Kitty!

  2. I am looking for my granddaughter that was adopted thru JFS on may 11,1990 in dallas. Adopted by family in Ft Worth. Any ideas for me. I am almost 80 and would love to find hrr

    • My advice is to take a DNA test so that if she is looking for you that way she can find you . Also list what you know on various adoption registries.
      I will send your information along to someone who might help
