#geneticgenealogy

A maternal cousin and a paternal cousin demonstrate two sides of chromosomes.
#geneticgenealogy  
A close match appeared at Family Tree DNA among my maternal uncle's matches.  This is the first close match from his father's side of the family.  The common ancestors are Samuel Haas (1867-1945) and Mary Zolder (1870-1948). ...

More on the trappings of cousins in common.
#geneticgenealogy  
The prior article concerned DNA cousins in common.  Finding DNA cousins who match you and some of your other DNA cousins is not uncommon.  You must be careful in drawing inferences in these situations. Finding cousins in comm...

This article illustrates why "matches in common" with your DNA cousins can be a wrong path to follow.
A DNA cousin at 23andMe shares identical DNA with my father and three of his close cousins- each from a different branch of the tree.  This is why you need to see the segment(s) shared between DNA cousins and you need to test...

Expanding DNA databases increase chances of genealogical connections.  Adding health-based services by AncestryHealth will have what impact?
#geneticgenealogy  
In DNA news, AncestryDNA announced that it has tested one million customers.  Last month, 23andMe announced that it had achieved one million customers.  As AncestryDNA began autosomal DNA testing services after 23andMe, I wou...

Interesting approach with Ancestry Health, but it definitely sounds like the better clinical way to give the information (ie, integration of family history with genetic info). If I do use one if these, I would probably use Ancestry Health for that reason.
You're right that the motivations are different for the person seeking family for health reasons than to just find "cousins of cousins".
