Chromosome browsers #dna

Different chromosome browsers can produce different results -
sometimes results which are quite impossible.

I discuss this on my blog this morning.

Thank you everyone for your replies!
You have all been so helpful!

Have any of you used the FT-dna Y-chromosome test or the
mitochondrial-dna instead of or in addition to the autosomal dna test?

I don't know what to buy.

Thanks again,
Anita Berk

question on autosomal test #dna

Jean-Pierre Stroweis
 

Hello,

Does an autosomal DNA test also include markers on the strictly paternal
ancestor line (like Y DNA test) and the strictly maternal ancestor line
(like the mtDNA test)?

In other words, can a fit between two autosomal tests be due to a (recent)
common ancestor on the strictly paternal or maternal line?

Jewish Protected Subjects of the French Consulate in Tunis, 1830-1913 #sephardic

Thierry Samama <thierry.samama@...>
 

The Cercle de Genealogie Juive has just published a ground-breaking
source for genealogists researching Jews in Tunisia :
"Les proteges israelites du consulat de France a Tunis 1830-1913"
by Liliane Nedjar and myself (in French, 218 pages).

Based on material held at the French Diplomatic Archives in Nantes,
France, the book provides genealogical information on nearly 3.000
individuals and their families (so 10-12.000 individuals in total) who
were registered as protected subjects of the French consulate in Tunis
between 1830-1913. For many protected subjects, the names of their
father, mother, spouse(s) and children are provided, with frequent
references to other entries in the registers. This allows
reconstruction of previously unaccessible genealogies up to the
beginning of the 19th century.

In addition, documents used to justify registration, as well as
administrative documents used to manage the registration process, are
also archived in Nantes. The book supplies indexes to these files
which can yield remarkable papers (e.g. passports, certificates, etc.)
with information such as physical characteristics or additional
biographical and genalogical details, with no other known source for
this period. This will require a short visit to Nantes, which can be
done in a day or two >from Paris.

A list of family names can be found online, and the book can be ordered, at
http://ftp.genealoj.org/fr/becane/proteges

Full disclosure: the authors derive no financial gain whatsoever from
the sale of this book. The non-profit Cercle de Genealogie Juive is
the largest Jewish genealogy association in France and is an IAJGS
affiliate.

Re: advice for newbies #dna

Steve Adelson <sjadelson@...>
 

Anita,

I'd strongly recommend autosomal before YDNA and mtDNA tests, if your
purpose is to find cousins. The Y and mt tests examine your direct maternal
or paternal lines, and are more useful for confirming or denying a
connection along those exact lines. Autosomal will cover your whole tree,
back perhaps 150 years; in individual cases, sometimes several hundred
years, but those are much more difficult to show on paper as well as the
DNA. A perfect match on YDNA (if we're talking, say, Y67) might still be
200 years back. A perfect match on full mtDNA might be 600 years. They
might be a lot more recent too, but unless you have documentation as well,
that's not going to help you much.

In general, DNA will support documentation - or in some rarer cases, show it
to be untrue. DNA testing without documentation is much less useful. If
you can afford to do all the testing, go for it. But given that few people
have reliable paper trees beyond two hundred years, do an autosomal test
first.

Best,
Steve Adelson
