Alan Rabe will be discussing mtDNA and yDNA testing.  These are used not only to assess current relationships but to take a historically deep look into mother's and father's lines.  The yDNA discussion will include both beginning STR testing as well as the newer SNP testing in Big Y-700 and the development of the haplotree to more recent times.  There will also be a short discussion of the provisions in FTDNA for passing on the torch to a group project.
