From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Genetic genealogy is the application of genetics to traditional genealogy. Genetic genealogy involves the use of genealogical DNA testing to determine the level and type of the genetic relationship between individuals. This application of genetics became popular with family historians in the first decade of the 21st century, as tests became affordable. The tests have been promoted by amateur groups, such as surname study groups, or regional genealogical groups, as well as research projects such as the genographic project. As of 2013 hundreds of thousands of people had been tested. As this field has developed, the aims of practitioners broadened, with many seeking knowledge of their ancestry beyond the recent centuries for which traditional pedigrees can be constructed.

|First, I'll introduce myself. My name is David Naylor. I am retired from designing computer systems for the telecommunications industry. Currently I'm spending lots of time doing those things for which I previously never had time (and still don't). My interests are cactus and other succulent plants, genealogy, genealogical DNA, photography, astronomy, metaphysics and, of course, computers; and I teach some of these subjects at local Seniors' Centres. I also give talks on these subjects to interested groups. I'm one of the founding members of the Toronto Cactus & Succulent Club. I'm also a Project Administrator for various genealogical DNA research projects and a member of the International Society of Genetic Genealogy.|
Now I realize that doesn't tell you much about me, but what were you expecting... a complete biography!?
