End of an era

Oxford Ancestors is closing down.

Read Bryan Sykes' farewell at

He certainly stimulated my interest in DNA testing, and is how I began my genetic journey, back in 2003 - I think.

I use the wonderfully colourful picture of my "Tara" haplogroup regularly, although the details have long since been improved with a mtDNA full sequence test from FamilyTreeDNA, and supplemented by autosomal testing - all for a fraction of the price paid for this initial test.

Thank you Bryan.

Roberta Estes' blog post at DNAeXplained has a very thoughtful article about the demise of yet another DNA resource, including what you can/should do to preserve your DNA.
