    The Genetic Genealogy Handbook: The Basics and Beyond by Emily D. Aulicino

    in History

    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.

    UNIA: Building A Black Global Business Network

    in Women

    Marcus Garvey was a man ahead of his time, whose vision was unfettered by the opinions of those around him. His imagination saw international shipping companies, publications circulating throughout the world, farming and industry on the continent of Africa, and so many things the restricted minds of men and women just two generations out of American slavery could barely fathom. But he built what he envisioned and proved that the genetic memory of many centuries of successful nation building was stronger than the few hundred years of repressed aspirations. Today we look at the rebuilding of a movement, during a time when global connections are accessible with the mere touch of a few buttons on a computer. Minister Revin Fellows of the United American Progress Association discusses an upcoming convention which has the potential of recreating and solidifying a global business network

    From Darkness to Light: Born this Way - The Science of Justifying Sin

    in Religion

    Man has always gloried in his ability to control his surroundings.  Ancient man tamed the animals; explorers tamed the wild and tamed the sea while conquerors tamed other people. Today, modern man has triumphed over diseases, explored space, extended his life and to some degree even harnessed the power of nature itself. Yet despite the great pride that man places in becoming ruler of all he surveys – there is one thing that man claims to have no control over, HIMSELF!  Scientists of today claim to have discovered a genetic origin for nearly every sin in the Bible from theft to murder, infidelity and even homosexuality.  So is it the fate of man to be forever ruled by his own base instincts? And why would God give us commandment to abstain from sin when the very fabric of sin is in our DNA?  Are we truly “Born this Way?” Or has the world been deceived by the Satanic delusion that servitude to sin is our only destiny. Join us today for another installment of “From Darkness to Light” as we expose the Satanic doctrine of the Science of Sin.


    We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Mon 8:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Thur 8:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am.  All times are Eastern Standard Time.

    Organizing and Analyzing Your Autosomal DNA Results with Diahan Southard

    in History

    Have you had your autosomal DNA tested and now you are confused?  Allow Diahan Southard to explain how you can organize, analyze and understand your results.


    In the year 2000 Diahan Southard found herself in the right place at the right time.  As an undergraduate in Microbiology, the laboratory she had been volunteering in was headed to Egypt to collect more samples for genetic study from an abandoned cemetery just outside of Cairo. While that trip never materialized, that research study became the foundation of the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation (SMGF), for whom she would work for the next 10 years.


    Her duties at SMGF and her sister companies were varied, from laboratory work to marketing to customer service. All of her knowledge and experience have culminated into her current position as Your DNA Guide. She writes for Family Tree Magazine, and is the Genetic Gem at Lisa Louise Cooke’s Genealogy Gems, blogging and podcasting about DNA and genealogy.


    Diahan's lectures are always fun, upbeat, and full of energy.  She has a passion for genetic genealogy, a genuine love for people, and a gift for making the technical understandable.

    The Self-Mockery Of Genetic Bio-Racism Within The Western Church

    in Spirituality

    This episode of Pneumatikos will explore the reality of biological idolatry within western religious ideology.  The biblical documents teach the love of God for all persons. The false hermeneutic of bio-racism is inherent within the teachings of western religious ideology.  The biblical documents teach that God is no respecter of persons, and those who do are teachers of false doctrine.  Jesus taught that his disciples are commaded to love one another as he loved them, however, this mandate is not practiced in the western religious tradition.  As a result, the western church is deeply fragmented,and we are witnessing the new Babylonian Captivity of The Church.
