Our next meeting will focus on a fairly specialized area of DNA analysis – endogamy and pedigree collapse.
Endogamy occurs when an underlying population has been through years of intermarriage. The classic examples are the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe, the French Canadians, and Appalachian settlers.
Pedigree collapse occurs when more recent generations intermarry. In much of America during the 19th Century there were marriages where brothers married sisters. No “incest”, but understanding the DNA of their descendants are complicated.
If you have Ashkenazi Jewish heritage, are French Canadian, or have other reason to be interested in DNA related to intermarriage, this is a meeting for you.
