A Sunday Walk Around the Blogs

Judy G. Russell, the Legal Genealogist, discusses the expansion of protection for genetic privacy by the federal government. Excellent news for those concerned about non-family members (like employers) gaining access to genetic tests.

Debbie Parker Wayne, at Deb’s Delvings in Genealogy, posted a nice discussion of Useful DNA Tests for Genealogy.

Kerry Scott, of Clue Wagon, describes how DNA testing causes gray hair.

And since we’re on the subject of genetic genealogy: If you’ve ever wanted to take the plunge, Family Tree DNA has a sale on its genetic tests right now. The sale ends tomorrow.

Y’all know how I’m always going on about Society publications? So it follows that I’m pretty interested in finding new ones. Michael Hait, on his blog Planting the Seeds, makes a case for the Pennsylvania Genealogy Magazine, and why it should be considered one of the top-tiered genealogy publications. He makes a good point.

Happy hunting!
