Estimating Grandparents DNA from Grandchildren? #dna

Seth Bittker <sbittker@...>
 

For purposes of genetic genealogy it would be wonderful to have DNA >from
my great-grandparents up on FTDNA or Ancestry. As they died a long time
ago, this is seemingly a fantasy. However, it seems to me that
technology could be developed to obtain a good approximation of my
great-grandparents' autosomal DNA based on the autosomal DNA of their
surviving grandchildren. Specifically it seems to me if one were able
to get test results >from a number of their grandchildren, one could then
find which sections of DNA are common between grandchildren >from
different siblings. As the different grandchildren combinations likely
would have different areas of overlap, by combining the areas of overlap
across the sets of grandchildren, one could obtain a large number of
sections of overlap for autosomal DNA which would very likely be >from
their grandparents. Admittedly one would not know which autosomal DNA
section came >from which grandparent, but this could even be refined by
looking at DNA results of descendants of each grandparents' siblings.
In addition genetic relationships between in-laws and others in the tree
could be an issue, but with additional research this problem could be
minimized as well.

Are there any tools that do something like this yet? If not, is anybody
working on developing technology like this?

Final word from the Seattle 2016 Conference #dna

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

If you attended the Conference, did you get to every session you wanted
to see? Did you hear buzz about sessions you wish you had been to? What
about the one that created an Aha! moment you want to recapture (like
Devin Naar's keynote or Judy Russell's banquet talk)?

You still can subscribe to the LIVE! on-demand service that will let you
watch many of the best sessions of the past week after you get home. You
can subscribe on line, for 90 days of on-demand viewing for $179.
On-demand viewing is good through 12 November 2016

To subscribe, go to the Attendee Service Center, log in, select Buy
LIVE!, Edit your account, and click Continue to the page with the LIVE!
Full Add On check box. Check it and continue to the confirmation and
payment pages. The Attendee Service Center will remain open next week,
but don't procrastinate, because we will have to close it soon.

For those who did not register for the Conference, please give us a
chance to regroup for a couple of days. Then, beginning 15 August, go
to the New Registration page at
https://s4.goeshow.com/iajgs/annual/2016/registration_form.cfm
We don't know how long we can keep that page open, so please do it

birth records in State Archives of Vinnitsa Oblast #general

Discussion group,

Contacted State Archives of Vinnitsa Oblast for birth records for my
ggrandfather{Moses{Morris Yasnes{a} who was born January 25,1881 in
Vinnitsa,Ukraine.They responded saying they don't have records on
people who lived in Vinnitsa before 1912. According to the
Routes to Roots Foundation website page the Vinnitsa Archives should
have these records.There are records before 1912 per the information.
Is there another archive for Vinnista? Is there a State Archives of
Vinnista Region Oblast and is that different >from only the State Archives
of Vinnitsa Oblast?.They did give me the name of Gersha Itskovicha Yasnis
= Hersh{Hirsch}, the son of Isaac,surname Yasnis. This would be information
for 1912.I have contacted them for this information.
Would appreciate your help.Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mike Yesnes
