Over the last week or so I made a bit of a discovery online. I won't share that discovery, but my thinking processes turned to DNA testing and contemplation's.
The way my brain works is to seek information, read and digest anything I can. Understanding the concept and seeing how I can use the concept in my research, with particular focus on my Orlando line.
Many of my fellow members of the Guild have already started a DNA project for their registered names, and like them I registered a project for both of my registered studies. I have not gone any further with them, that is until now.
So now I am back on the trail of books about DNA especially those relating to genealogy. I have this book, a re-borrow from the library. I have also reserved another 2 books on the subject.
The biggest question I have is around testing from myself when I have no male subjects to compare against. As soon as I can work this out and understand it, I will order a test.
Furthermore, one interesting notion is, that given the historical background of those in Sicily, with a Arabic or Jewish background, I wonder if that will be revealed in my test?
In the meantime, here are the links to my one name studies DNA projects
Are you interested in the DNA aspects of genealogy? Have you come across good books, articles or websites? -if you, please do share I would be interested to here if others gave also found this a mind field!
