An orphan in the early days wasn't a child whose parents had died, but rather a child whose father had died.

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM PDT

Once upon a time, the idea of using DNA to solve genealogical mysteries seemed like science fiction. Now many genetic genealogists have become citizen scientists. Y-DNA and mtDNA have moved on to the next generation, and autosomal and X-DNA have become powerful tools in many genealogists' tool kits. What does the future of genetic genealogy hold?
