What are the chances that Megan Smolenyak would meet and marry a man with the surname Smolenyak without being at least distantly related to him? What if the two surname lines came from the same area of the world? I’m sure that everyone who has heard of Megan has wondered how she came by the double last name.
Megan writes “Did I Marry My Cousin” at Megan’s Roots World to introduce a new segment at Roots Television about how she used genetic genealogy to analyze the question. The segment is available here. I highly recommend stopping by to learn more about this particular use of genetic genealogy, especially since I’m not going to give you the answer!
