Subject: Re: [DNA] "Newbie" Resources -- Several DNA Info & Help Pages alreadyexist

There are already DNA Info & Help Pages provided by several surname
project coordinators. I offer my Kerchner DNA Info Page as an example.
Of course the more help and resource pages the merrier.
What is needed is some kind of automatic link to these pages for newbies
who subscribe to the list. I don't know how Rootsweb.com can manage to
automatically do that, but it would be useful for newbies to this list
if it could be done.

The resource list will definitely include all labs that do the testing, with a small precis on what to expect from the site. Not everyone is aware of the range of labs, and the range of testing available, and how useful each site is in terms of providing specific information. For example, FTDNA's Library is very handy since it includes articles that can be directly downloaded.

I also like FTDNA's Inheritance Chart at http://www.familytreedna.com/tc.html. Having the visual helps me "see" what cousins we need to find to study different lines of Y or mt DNA. (A standard pedigree chart helps with this too.)
