The principal function of heraldry, whether personal or corporate, is to symbolise the identity of the owner of the armorial bearings. In Scotland the Clan, the Family, and the Name have survived as significant entities in the social organization of Scottish society.[4]. In Scottish heraldry there is no such thing as a "family coat of arms". Junior members of a family are assigned specific and relevant differences to the armorial bearings of an ancestor.[4]. Scottish heraldry operates under the supposition that all those who share the same surname are related, however distantly. Consequently, where a coat of arms for the head of a family already exists, new grants of arms to individuals with the same surname will generally be variations on those arms.[14] "[T]he salient feature of Scottish heraldry is that, as compared with England and other countries, the basic coats of arms are relatively few in number, but numerous differenced versions of each basic shield exist. The basic, or simple ...
Beautifully illustrated with 32 full-color plates and over one hundred halftones and line drawings, The Oxford Guide to Heraldry offers a fascinating tour of the heart of medieval pagentry. The first guide to heraldry written by Officers of Arms with full access to the College of Arms Library--which boasts the finest collection of heraldic manuscripts in the world--this colorful volume is both an authoritative, completely up-to-date reference for experts and an excellent introduction for beginners, covering the origins of heraldry, the composition of arms and their visual appearance, the use of arms as decoration, and much more. The authors explain how coats of arms differed from country to country, with informative sections on France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and other European nations, plus a complete chapter devoted to heraldry in America. They discuss the traditional tinctures (colors) used--two metals, five colors, and two furs--and reveal that the colors are continually updated (for instance, after

Purifying selection at many linked sites alters patterns of molecular evolution, reducing overall diversity and distorting the shapes of genealogies. Recombination attenuates these effects, however purifying selection can significantly distort genealogies even for substantial recombination rates. Here, we show that when selection and/or recombination are sufficiently strong, the genealogy at any single site can be described by a time-dependent effective population size, Ne(t), which has a simple analytic form. Our results illustrate how recombination reduces distortions in genealogies, and allow us to quantitatively describe the shapes of genealogies in the presence of strong purifying selection and recombination. We also analyze the effects of a distribution of selection coefficients across the genome. ...

The rest of our DNA, called autosomal DNA, is widely used for forensic identification and for verifying paternity but so far has found only limited use in genealogy because individuals receive DNA from each of their parents, which combines to form the individuals DNA. In each following generation, the genetic code is further diluted as DNA passes to a new generation. Most sections of our autosomal DNA represent small haplotype sequences inherited from a relatively small number of unknown ancestors among the thousands we had tens of generations back. Autosomal DNA is likely to find more uses in genealogy as a result of research now underway to identify inheritance patterns for haplotype segments in the DNA of the recombining chromosomes. The Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation is testing sample donors from all over the world, comparing inherited DNA sequences on all their chromosomes with genealogies submitted by the donors (visit http://smgf.org for more information.)

At a minimum, genealogy software collects the date and place of an individuals birth, marriage, and death, and stores the relationships of individuals to their parents, spouses, and children. Some programs are more flexible than others in allowing for the input of children born out of wedlock or for varying types of spousal relationships. Additionally, most genealogy programs handle additional events in an individuals life, notes, photographs and multimedia, and source citations. Genealogy software programs can produce a variety of graphical charts and text reports, such as pedigree charts, ahnentafel reports, and Register reports. Some desktop applications generate HTML pages for web publishing; there are stand-alone web applications, as well. Most genealogy programs can import and export using the GEDCOM standard. There are also some programs that allow users to create Genograms which can be used by scientists, social workers, doctors, and others to get a graphical view of additional ...

It occurred to me that that "living pulse beneath the official version" of history is what genealogy is all about. Genealogy is the human face of history. It is so much more than names and dates (though I, as a history major, insist that history itself is more than just names and dates). But the broader brush of history touches only on the larger picture, the great trends and tides that have created our present. Genealogy is much more intimate. It is the story of the lives of the living, breathing, feeling, striving human beings that make up the entire warp and weft of history, not just the famous and influential, but the common people as well. It was our ancestors who settled this continent. It was our ancestors who built and manned and used the railroads. It was our ancestors who fought and died in this countrys wars. It was our ancestors who worked in the fields and factories, who served in the armed forces, who raised the countrys children -- more of our ancestors, and including ourselves ...
I often get emails from people who are new to genetic genealogy asking questions about their newly-received DNA testing results. They are unsure about about what the results mean, how to find more information, or what to do next. I also see people ask these questions in all of the DNA forums and mailing lists that I subscribe to. Although I do my best to help the people that email me, I often wish there was more I could do.. In an attempt to assist people with the interpretation of their genetic genealogy testing results, Ive written an eBook that takes the reader step-by-step through an analysis of their Y-DNA or mtDNA results, including estimating a haplogroup and sub-clade from testing results, finding resources to learn more about particular haplogroups, and finding haplogroup and haplotype matches, among many other topics. Here is the Table of Contents from the 28-page eBook:. Chapter 1: What Is (And Isnt) Genetic Genealogy ...
These days, my family genealogy has taken a back seat to my work as a historian, researching the people and families of St. Augustine, Florida, during the Second Spanish Period (1784-1821). I am taking a historical and genealogical approach to my subject. Most days, I am still translating the marriage permission petitions filed by people who did not have qualified relatives in St. Augustine or nearby who could grant them the required permission to marry. I have finished the rough translations, the first pass-through, and am now working on the smooth translations. They are about halfway done ...
Well now that summer is officially coming to an end I am forcing myself to get back to my blog. I have been feeling guilty about my limited or complete absence from my genealogy.

It took an eternity for the updates to process and the security software to make things safe and sound, yet I persevered. I went straight to my go to sites for ideas to blog about.

My class load this year will really start to wind down, so I will need to start to focus more and have some goals if Im going to get any major genealogy research done. So I have set quite a few goals for myself for the upcoming year based on what Ive been thinking about these past few weeks and hoping that I could start working on one of these days. I have organized my goals in to categories to hopefully help me keep even more focus. One thing I do not have on this list is a goal towards increasing my genealogy expertise. I think this will occur naturally and can be incorporated once I get a feel for how the ebb and flow of my life will start to take shape. So without further ado, here is my list ...

Positive selection distorts the structure of genealogies and hence alters patterns of genetic variation within a population. Most analyses of these distortions focus on the signatures of hitchhiking due to hard or soft selective sweeps at a single genetic locus. However, in linked regions of rapidly adapting genomes, multiple beneficial mutations at different loci can segregate simultaneously within the population, an effect known as clonal interference. This leads to a subtle interplay between hitchhiking and interference effects, which leads to a unique signature of rapid adaptation on genetic variation both at the selected sites and at linked neutral loci. Here, we introduce an effective coalescent theory (a "fitness-class coalescent") that describes how positive selection at many perfectly linked sites alters the structure of genealogies. We use this theory to calculate several simple statistics describing genetic variation within a rapidly adapting population and to implement efficient ...
It is demonstrated that the structured coalescent model can readily be extended to include phenomena such as partial selfing and background selection through the use of an approximation based on separation of time scales. A model that includes these phenomena, as well as geographic subdivision and linkage to a polymorphism maintained either by local adaptation or by balancing selection, is derived, and the expected coalescence time for a pair of genes is calculated. It is found that background selection reduces coalescence times within subpopulations and allelic classes, leading to a high degree of apparent differentiation. Extremely high levels of subpopulation differentiation are also expected for regions of the genome surrounding loci important in local adaptation. These regions will be wider the stronger the local selection, and the higher the selfing rate. ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Phylogenetic and epidemic modeling of rapidly evolving infectious diseases. AU - Kühnert, Denise. AU - Wu, Chieh Hsi. AU - Drummond, Alexei J.. PY - 2011/12. Y1 - 2011/12. N2 - Epidemic modeling of infectious diseases has a long history in both theoretical and empirical research. However the recent explosion of genetic data has revealed the rapid rate of evolution that many populations of infectious agents undergo and has underscored the need to consider both evolutionary and ecological processes on the same time scale. Mathematical epidemiology has applied dynamical models to study infectious epidemics, but these models have tended not to exploit - or take into account - evolutionary changes and their effect on the ecological processes and population dynamics of the infectious agent. On the other hand, statistical phylogenetics has increasingly been applied to the study of infectious agents. This approach is based on phylogenetics, molecular clocks, genealogy-based population ...
How do you interpret the admixture proportion percentage on each chromosome? For example is there any significance as to which chromosome has the largest percentage? (i.e. chromosome 22 has 40% West Asian but chromosome 16 has only 6%). Does this mean one would share 40% of DNA from this particular marker? Any feedback would be appreciated Thank you
I once told someone that in addition to learning about their ancient origins (such as Y-DNA and mtDNA haplogroups), many genetic genealogists would ideally like to match every portion of their DNA with the contributing ancestor. Although this might seem to be beyond the reach of current genetic ancestry testing, it has actually already begun. The family compare function of 23andMe, for example, is already being used by genetic genealogists for just this purpose; people who have matching DNA segments can compare ancestry and attempt to identify the ancestor who might have contributed the DNA.. For obvious reasons, medical geneticists have for many years been using genealogy to trace founder mutations in populations. For example, in 2008 scientists traced a colon cancer gene in the United States to a Mr. and Mrs. George Fry who arrived in the New World around 1630 (see A Single Colon Cancer Gene Traced to 1630).. Tracing A Heart Disease Gene in South Africa. Now, scientists in South Africa ...

In genetic genealogy the Y-chromosome is used to test the all male line (top line of a pedigree chart with the tester as number one on that chart) as this chromosome is consistent over time. For this reason a living male can be tested to determine the DNA signature of his ancestors in his all male line. The same is true of sections of the mitochondrial (mtDNA) which tests a persons all female line (bottom line of the pedigree chart if the tester is number one on that chart). Men can test both their Ydna and their mtDNA as every mother passes her mtDNA to all her children. However, only the daughters can pass the mtDNA to her children. Women can only their their mtDNA, as naturally, they do not carry their fathers Y-chromosome. As Ydna mutates (changes that do no harm the species) more often it is possible to determine matches between testers within genealogical time. The mtDNA is slower to mutate, thus common the common ancestor of testers who match is not always within genealogical time. ...
