Presented by H. Rudy Ramsey, PH.D
MacAoidh Research Project: Phase 1 -- Basic Y-DNA Analysis
Rudy Ramsey is a retired software ergonomist, designer, and developer. He has some 30 years' experience in genealogy, and is currently leading a group of researchers who are trying to determine the exact connections of their related lines, using DNA techniques as well as traditional genealogy. This presentation describes a portion of that research. Of particular interest to members of the CRGS DNA study group, the presentation will use that project as a vehicle for a tutorial about Y-DNA analysis.
Required text is Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy by Blaine Bettinger. The reading for February is Chapter 5 in the new edition, yDNA.
