  6. DNA and my 1st cousins

    I have recently had a DNA test, this I did after a 1st Cousin had her DNA results which resulted in her fathers father ( her Grandfather) not being who we thought he was. My DNA results suggest that she is now a 2nd Cousin not 1st, could this be because her Grandfather and mine are different...

  8. Does DNA disprove traditional genealogy?

    I have taken the liberty of starting this thread with a post from a different thread as I feel it is worth considering own its own merits. In answer to Michelle I would say in perhaps 50 or 100 years this might be a real problem but not at present. Why do I say that, simply because DNA...

    Would a blood transfusion have any effect on a subsequent DNA test taken for genealogical research purposes? Any clarification would be much appreciated.

  15. Privacy and public trees

    I've always been fiercely protective over my identity and privacy but I've had to modify that a bit with my DNA matches! I have four private trees on Ancestry (private to protect the living and the personal information about my ancestors that they might not have wanted others to know). The trouble...

  16. Taken aback by DNA results!

    A couple of years ago I had my brother's DNA done by NatGeo but decided to try mine with Anc* as well as my husband's. His result was pretty much as expected, he is half Scandinavian and then a lot of English with some Irish and traces of Belgian/Germans (Loyalists). The proportions in his...

  18. Dillon Surname DNA Research Project

    Today there are estimated to be approximately 100,000 Dillons across the world; contrary to what many believe, the Dillon surname is not solely an Irish name and is not of a single origin. For example, although many believe that all Irish Dillons are descended from the Anglo-Norman invader Sir...

  19. Make sure you know what you are signing up to

    I haven't and won't be doing a DNA test for genealogical purposes, but I just read an article on BBC news business pages about the small print that people may not realise that they have signed up to when they signed up with Ancestry DNA: * grant Ancestry a "perpetual" licence to use customers'...
