Yesterday Judy Kellar Fox writing in the blog BCG SpringBoard: News and Notes gave us another indication that the field of genetic genealogy is coming of age:
We can't stick our heads in the sand any more when it comes to learning about using DNA testing in genealogical research.
We can't ignore the value of genetic testing as a research tool. Let's learn how to use it!
She then presented a robust list of resources for getting started in and keeping up-to-date in genetic genealogy.
I was very gratified that my recent NextGen Genealogy: the DNA Connection was one of four books listed in her section for "a good way to gain a basic understanding of the fundamentals of genetic genealogy." In addition this blog, Dr D Digs Up Ancestors was among the essential blogs to "help us stay on top of the newest developments."
Let the learning begin/continue! I know that is why I write and lecture. If I ever feel I am not learning, I'll stop writing and lecturing.
Judy's is not a static list. It already has had additions offered in the comments section since it was published yesterday morning.
