Genetics is the study of heredity and how we pass on characteristics from a parent to a child, biologically.  As applied to Genealogy here though, it is the study of all the strands of DNA that are carried down the generations and how they can be used to help uncover the ancestry or pedigree of the person tested.  Below is the further glossary of terms as used in the Genetic Genealogy field applied to this study project.
