Anthrogenealogy is a word coined by FamilyTreeDNA (FTDNA), a DNA testing company. According to FTDNA, Anthrogenealogy combines methods of two sciences - anthropology, as pursued principally in academic settings, and genealogy, largely carried out by avocational researchers. Utilizing molecular biology to observe genetic data lineage trails you are able to connect unknown family members using and comparing specific locations on Y or mtDNA we inherited from our fathers and mothers. Anthrogenealogy is, therefore, our word of choice for studying deep genealogical origins through genetics means.

The DNA-Anthrogenealogy forum at Yahoo is where genealogists, Genetic Genealogists and DNA Testing participants can meet to discuss ancient genetic ancestry according to testing results.
