Goal of Blog

Welcome to a different perspective on genetic genealogy.

Through some curious test results coupled with my tendency to examine all assumptions  and to evaluate the credibility of all assertions, I have been placed into a position where I see problems with the current genetic genealogy theory, especially the autosomal DNA matching methodology. While it works well enough for the first few generations, helping people find birth parents or other lost or unknown relatives, that same methodology increasingly becomes ineffective once you start looking for answers in the more distant generations. This blog will not be limited to just examining autosomal DNA issues, but that is the initial focus.  Later the blog will take up matters involving mtDNA and Y-DNA.

Quite bluntly, the goal of this blog is to retire itself by getting what should be in the mainstream actually there and removing what does not work.
