    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.

    Chief Langley Genealogy Lecture on ''Historical Barriers and Beliefs''

    in History

    Persuasion at work always takes place within a network of relationships. A relationship with someone, somewhere will be the starting point for putting your idea “in play,” and relationships with and between people you may not even know will often be the end point for getting it adopted. You need a circle of influence, a network of people who know people who know people. And it may be too late to form such a circle when you are ready to make your sale. The relationships must already be in place. The biggest barriers, of course, arise when you face negative or hostile relationships in the pathway of your idea.  1.

    Slavery had virtually disappeared in Western Europe by the 1500s and it looked to be dying where it existed. Only Spain and Portugal still practiced slavery and in a turn of irony, these were the two countries that led the colonizing effort in the Americas, almost ensuring that slavery would be transported from Europe to the New World.
