Emily Aulicino, author of Genetic Genealogy: The Basics and Beyond, will join Jane this evening. Emily will explain some of the foundations of DNA testing for genealogy, discuss the purposes of the different DNA tests, and talk about some of the features the three main autosomal DNA testing companies (23andMe, AncestryDNA, and Family Tree DNA/FTDNA) offer to aid genealogists. She'll give us an overview of her book, telling us what we'll discover, and most importantly, she'll give us some examples of how DNA testing solved genealogical mysteries.

On Thursday April 14th, at 8 pm eastern time, Bennett Greenspan, President & CEO of Family Tree DNA, will join us for a 1-hour show. We'll be discussing the current state of DNA testing for genealogy and all that Family Tree DNA has to offer those who are seeking answers to their past. St. Clair Research launched with Family Tree DNA (via WorldFamilies.net) in 2004 and since then we've been sprinting to keep up with all their innovations. Join us to learn about - • FTDNA's new Family Finder test which is a breakthrough for those who wish to cross over between female and male DNA • The Warrior Gene • Why size matters in DNA testing companies • All the recent changes at FTDNA's online GAP sites • Genetic distance, Mutation rates, and STR testing Mark your calendar and find out why 90% of genealogists (and Sinclair DNA) choose Family Tree DNA to handle their family DNA studies. Bennett is a great speaker and has a wonderful way of simplifying this complex subject. The St Clair DNA study owes a tremendous debt of gratitude to Bennett Greenspan and those at FTDNA for all the continued assistance they provide and their dedication to solving genealogy questions. Their tagline, "History Unearthed Daily" couldn't be more true. There's not a day that goes by that we don't learn more about Sinclair Family History thanks to FTDNA.
Bennett Greenspan, president and CEO of Family Tree DNA, joins Jane to talk about mitochondrial (mt) DNA. Find out what mtDNA is, what the differences between mtDNA and yDNA haplogroups are, and how to interpret our results. Bennett will explain how the migration maps and origins used by FTDNA were determined, what applications mtDNA has for genealogy research, and where he thinks mtDNA applications will be going in the future.
