The Genetic Genealogy Handbook: The Basics and Beyond by Emily D. Aulicino
Finally, in the rapidly evolving field of genetic genealogy an up-to-date resource is here! Born out of necessity to update the available information in this rapidly evolving field, author Emily D. Aulicino wrote Genetic Genealogy: The Basics and Beyond to provide genealogists, both budding and experienced, with the knowledge and confidence to use DNA testing for their family research. The book guides genealogists through the introductory level of understanding various tests to a more advance level of determining what DNA segments came from which ancestor.
Genetic Genealogy explains how DNA testing helps when written records stop and discusses how testing can prove or disprove oral family history. The book describes which tests can help adoptees find their biological families and mentions a website that offers free assistance for testing and locating adoption information.
Genetic Genealogy: The Basics and Beyond will help both the experienced and the fledgling researchers become genetic genealogists able to use DNA testing to resolve their genealogical roadblocks.
Emily D. Aulicino, a genealogist since 1970 and the Northwest speaker and regional coordinator of the International Society of Genealogy (ISOGG), has given presentations on genetic genealogy for a large variety of audiences both nationally and internationally. Aulicino has been interviewed for television and newspapers and has had articles published in the U.S. and abroad. She remains current in her knowledge by attending genetic genealogy conferences yearly and runs several DNA projects.
Hello and welcome back from our day of giving thanks! We will conclude our discussion of the Book of Revelation, and hopefully I will be giving to all of you some facts and symbols that are relevant and easier to understand. We are at the End of Days for our planet, and watching and understanding the signs of the times is important. Preparedness is more important than ever, so that if we find ourselves in the midst of a disaster, we have a way to survive and to hopefully move on, while helping others.
This book is one of the hidden books of Saint Clement the Apostle, disciple of Simon Cepha, which Saint Clement commanded to be kept secret from the laity. Some of them were called “The Book of the Rolls,” and there are the glorious genealogies and mysteries which our God and Saviour Jesus the Christ committed to his disciples Simon and James, and what things will happen at the end of time, and how the second coming of our Lord the Christ from heaven to the world will happen, and what will become of sinners and such like. This is the sixth of Clement’s books, treasured up in the city of Rome since the time of the Apostles.
Saint Clement said, When our God Jesus the Christ went up to heaven and the disciples were scattered in the regions of the world to evangelize, and to call mankind to the faith and to immersion by baptism, they took disciples, whom they chose and selected to be with them, and to travel about to the countries in the faith of the Christ. Wherefore Simon Cepha took me for a disciple to himself; I believed in him, and in Him that sent him, with a true faith; I recognized that he was chief of the Apostles, to whom were given the keys of heaven and earth, on whom was built the Catholic Apostolic Church of God, which p. 2 the gates of Hell shall not destroy, as our God Jesus the Christ said in the holy Gospel. After a long time he took also my brothers Constans and Constantinus to be his disciples.
It's another action-packed episode of UJR as Richard Stanley Stops by to talk about recent events where a woman's pet snakes were unjustly taken by the federal government and what should happen in this instance. Then the one and only Shawn Heflick stops by to talk Croc conservation and Christmas Crocfest 15 taking place at Croc Manor on December 5th to benefit global crocodile conservation projects. It's going to be a spectacualr one as usual on the won and only, world famous, UrbanJunglesRadio
For more infor visit www.USARK.org and the following on Crocfest:
Christmas Croc Fest 2015 is scheduled to take place on Saturday, December 5, 2015 from noon until 10:00 pm at Crocodile Manor, Shawn Heflick’s facility, in Palm Bay, Florida. Proceeds raised at this year's event will benefit the West African slender-snouted crocodile, Mecistops cataphractus. Populations of the West African slender-snout have been isolated from the Central African group for over 7.5 million years, resulting in such morphological and genetic distinctions that taxonomic revisions are underway to recognize it as a unique species. Considered the least-known crocodile in the world, surveys in West Africa over the last ten years have detected fewer than 20 wild adults. In 2013, they were assigned a Critically Endangered classification on the IUCN Red List.
The latest news on the Genetically Modified foods front is the FDA approval of the GMO salmon in the US, or "Frankenfish", as it's not-so-affectionately termed. This marks the first genetically modified animal food to be approved for entry into our foodchain, and its approval in other countries is anticipated to follow, despite widespread public outcry.
Today on the SOTT Talk Radio Network's Health and Wellness Show, we'll be reopening the topic of GMOs and exploring the implication of genetically modified animal foods entering our foodchain. Is there any hope in avoiding these frankenfoods? Join us as we explore this topic and more.
Adam, Seth, Enosh, Kenan, Mahalalel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth.
The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech and Tiras. The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Diphath, and Togarmah. The sons of Javan were Elishah, Tarshish, Kittim and Rodanim.
The sons of Ham were Cush, Mizraim, Put, and Canaan. The sons of Cush were Seba, Havilah, Sabta, Raama and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan. Cush became the father of Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
Mizraim became the father of the people of Lud, Anam, Lehab, Naphtuh, Pathrus, Casluh, from which the Philistines came, and Caphtor.
Canaan became the father of Sidon, his firstborn, Heth, and the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites, the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites, the Arvadites, the Zemarites and the Hamathites.
The sons of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arpachshad, Lud, Aram, Uz, Hul, Gether and Meshech.
Arpachshad became the father of Shelah and Shelah became the father of Eber. Two sons were born to Eber, the name of the one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided, and his brother’s name was Joktan.

Study: BFFs May Have Similar DNA Belinda Luscombe @luscombeland July 15, 2014
Really close friends might be as genetically similar as fourth cousins
Next time someone says “You would really like my friend, she’s just like you,” try to refrain from giving her the side eye. It turns out she might have some science to back her up. According to a new study from Yale University and the University of California at San Diego, good friends are often genetically similar, and can share as much as 1% of the same gene variants. In genetic terms, that’s a lot. As close as, say, fourth cousins.
“This gives us a deeper accounting of the origins of friendship,” says Nicholas Christakis, professor of sociology, evolutionary biology, and medicine at Yale, who co-authored the study with James Fowler, professor of medical genetics and political science at UC San Diego. “Not only do we form ties with people superficially like ourselves, we form ties with people who are like us on a deep genetic level. They’re like our kin, though they’re not.”
The study found that, oddly, close friends are often genetically similar in their sense of smell. But it also concluded that friendship may play a role in evolution. The genes that were shared by friends saw the most “evolutionary activity”, or have evolved the fastest over the past 30,000 years. Whether the friendship or the genetic similarity came first is up for debate. Do we seek out genetically similar friends or do our friendships and mating affect what genes get passed on
“Human beings are one of the few species who form long-term, non-reproductive relationships with other members of our species,” says Fowler.
Have you ever wanted to know what you’re really made of? Why your eyes are blue? Are you lactose intolerant? Are you a better sprinter or endurance athlete?
You don’t need to have a Ph-D or M-D to find out. The first home genetic test recently authorized to market by the F-D-A is here. And it can tell you about your health, traits and even your ancestry.
