Family Tree DNA has a new tool to assist with our personal autosomal DNA analysis which, according to the Legal Genealogist is likely to take some getting used to.

The Family Finder DNA test at Family Tree includes autosomal DNA.  We all have autosomal DNA in our 23 pairs of chromosomes. I’ve read several different explanations of what autosomal DNA actually is and what it represents in the male and female DNA and found some contradictory information, which leads to confusion.

The article X marks the spot, written by Judy G. Russell on the Legal Genealogist blog explains it all very well and keeps it concise and simple. Russell’s use of diagrams is also well-done.
