DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants DNA view
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Dorothea's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Dorothea gets her mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Dorothea's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants page shows exactly who has inherited Dorothea's testable DNA.

DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid check mark
This tool helps you take things a step beyond the DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants views. The ambitious goal: scientific confirmation of each parent-child relationship in Dorothea's tree. This is still fairly complex but it's getting simpler every day.

The dynamic tree expands to include an unlimited number of generations of parents and children. You can zoom in or out and pan around for the perfect view as you browse.
