Genetic genealogy is everywhere right now – Science, CBC, Reuters, and LiveScience, just to name a few. This week two articles came out that gave readers both the ups and downs of genetic genealogy, gathering and presenting information and quotes from both sides.
The first article, â€œDNA testing for genealogy grows in popularity, but some urge restraintâ€ appeared in the Wisconsin State Journal on the 9th. The second article is entitled â€œAncestral DNA testing is not exact scienceâ€ and although the assertion in the title wasn’t developed in the short article, the author went to authorities with opposite viewpoints and presented both in the article.
Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak, who was quoted in the second article, blogged about some of her thoughts on the topic yesterday.
