Victor McKusick, “Mendelian Inheritance in Man“: Catalog of Human Genes and Genetic Disorders”, 1966 was a nonfiction medical book; and, it was the topic of an earlier blog post.
Nancy Hendrickson, “The Unofficial Guide to Ancestry.com: How to Find your Family History on the #1 Genealogy Website”, 2018 was a “Genealogy” book and is the topic of this blog post. Nancy Hendrickson, “Part Three: Uncovering Ancestors with Ancestry DNA”, and more specifically “Chapter 12. Interpreting Your DNA Results” I wish to discuss.
Genealogy is the study of “ancestry” simply as “family trees”; and, documents of all types are valued. “Genealogy” (social science) and “Genetics” (natural science) are diametrically opposite “documentations”.
This is my point Ancestry.com keeps its focus on finding ancestors; and, DNA results are only part of the locating of ancestors task.
“Genetics”, or more specifically “Genetic Anatomy” is a “level” of anatomy; and, is a branch of Medical records “documentation”. Victor McKusick, “Mendelian Inheritance in Man: Catalog of Human Genes and Genetic Disorders”, 1966 was a nonfiction medical book; and, it was the topic of an earlier blog post. Above I present the human chromosome karyotype.
Chromosomes are listed “alphabetically” (A-to-G) and “numerically” (1-to-22) in the table above. Nancy Henderickson, “Chapter 12” is about “SNP” (single nucleotide polymorphs) at position on chromosome. “SNP” on chromosomes is technical; and, Ancestry.com stays focus on just presenting “names” of ancestors.
All other Genealogy website contain “chromosome browsers”; but, Ancestry DNA.com does have a “chromosome browser” for the raw DNA data.
