Follow Friday: The Lineal Arboretum

A few days ago on a forum at the website 23andme I had the pleasure of encountering Dr James M Owston  and his blog The Lineal Arboretum 

Dr Owston was able to answer my question about the random nature of recombination, and deftly explained why some individuals end up with DNA matching mine and others in the same biological family do not.

He gave me a link to his blog, which I have found very interesting and educational. Worth checking out, especially if you are interested in genetic genealogy!

Have a great day!

Betty, I decided to follow him too, but I'm not sure if I will understand everything. FYI, nothing yet!

I'm not sure I understand everything either - thanks for the follow and the plug on your blog.
