DNA, BYU & GeneTree

Another report from the 2008 National Genealogical Society Conference in the States, held this year in Kansas City, Missouri. If you can get here -- it is worth the visit and the conference runs through Saturday.

DearREADERS,
Ol' Myrt here just finished visiting with the folks from GeneTree.com and I've got great news for those of that participated in the old BYU DNA project, which was supported by Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation..

GeneTree and the Sorenson have teamed up to unlock your mitochondrial (mtDNA) results. mtDNA follows the contributor’s maternal line going back into deep ancestry. Just fill out their online forms so they can identify you, then pay $19.95 and the transfer of your old BYU blood sample mtDNA results will become integrated with GeneTree.com.

This means all my friends from the:
  • Genealogical Society of Sarasota
  • Manasota Genealogical Society
  • South Bay Genealogical Society

can finally WORK WITH their mitochondrial (mtDNA) results. Go to the following website to initiate the move: http://www.genetree.com/dna/unlock_smgf

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
DearMYRTLE,
Your friend in genealogy.
