What’s in a name? Y chromosomes, surnames and the genetic genealogy revolution

Turi King and Mark Jobling from the University  of Leicester have published another interesting paper “What’s in a name? Y  chromosomes, surnames and the genetic genealogy revolution” in the latest issue  of “Trends in Genetics“. This article is essential reading for all Guild members  and everyone with an interest in surnames. There is a brief review of the paper  on Blaine Bettinger’s  blog:

    Surnames and genealogy go hand in hand. Surname studies and genetic genealogy can yield a lot of very useful information. But what do you do if you’re trying to find your ancestor who’s name has been misspelled or has been to badly garbled? Check out the blog about
    names and genealogy.
