Day 1 will begin with an overview of the topics to be covered and what survives online and offline. Two sessions will be dedicated to service at sea and service in the air, before we move on to the British Army.

Day 2 will focus entirely on service in the British Army: how the army evolved, how it was organized, how we can be smart in using surviving source material to inform us about soldiers’ services.

Grandpa’s Eyes and Grandma’s Hair: Tracing the Origin of Physical Traits with Genetic Genealogy - free webinar by Paul Woodbury now online for limited time

2021-07-07-image500blog

The recording of today's webinar by Paul Woodbury, "Grandpa’s Eyes and Grandma’s Hair: Tracing the Origin of Physical Traits with Genetic Genealogy" is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

DNA is the underlying code for human life. Variations in this code result in the physical diversity observed between humans. While some physical traits are determined by just a few variations, many more are governed by several to hundreds of genes. Also, while we might point to one ancestor as the source of a particular trait, in fact many of our traits are determined by contributions from both our maternal and paternal ancestors. The interactions of these gene alleles and their products result in our unique physical characteristics. With chromosome mapping, we can also trace the origins of some of these traits and characteristics.
