DNA and Genealogy—molecular genealogy is a new method of research used to enhance traditional genealogical, where DNA is used in association with written records. DNA is transmitted from one generation to the next. Some parts are passed almost unchanged, creating a strong link between generations, and can be of great help in reconstructing personal family histories. Since all have inherited genetic material from their ancestors, even very distantly related individuals share portions of this information. Likewise, the closer the relative, the greater the amount of shared genetic information. So, even though the entire DNA sequence of an individual is unique to that individual, similar genetic information can be found among those that descend from common ancestors. The objective is to establish family links among individuals, families, tribes and populations by using the information encoded in DNA. (source, Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation)
