Why a blog?

My forays into genetic genealogy were generating way too many emails to my family. So I decided to keep a blog of my latest findings so they could check here instead of getting too many messages from me. This blog also helps me stay organized and remember what I have found out so far.  I also hope that what I have learned will be useful to others. Last but not least, this gives me a place to share the tools I have created for making pretty pictures of genetic segment overlaps.

I also wanted a place to talk about my garden. Much of my new property will stay wild for a while. First I have been getting to know the trees and plants I have. Then I am trying to learn about gardening in zone 9B (san diego east county, a little less than 20 miles from the ocean).

Our view

I do not intend to discuss bridge here. My bridge site, BridgeTeaching.com and our columns on the District 17 site should cover that topic well enough

  1. Hi! Which is the preferred ancestry search to us to determine a Jewish ancestry?
    Also, the gardener in you will most likely enjoy my blog, winged beauty.com, a butterfly and wildflower blog.

    • Jeffrey, I look forward to your garden photos.
      To determine if you have Jewish ancestry, 23andme is the most accurate but any test can be uploaded to GEDmatch to try the Eurogenes jtest admix tool
