Traditional family history and genealogy take a back seat. Genes and DNA have taken over. In just three years. I was disappointed when we first received DNA results for a cousin. Not anymore. I have listened to the presentations about genes and DNA here at the Canberra Congress. We haven’t even scraped the surface yet. This is before my daughter Alica mentioned the article about detecting county boundaries by genetic data alone just published in Nature. It’s like starting traditional genealogy all over again.
