What's Anthrogenealogy? A word coined by FamilyTreeDNA (FTDNA)
, pioneer GG DNA testing company. Anthrogenealogy combines two science methods - anthropology, pursued principally academically, and genealogy pursued largely by avocational researchers. Using Molecular Biology to observe genetic lineages to connect unknown family members using and comparing YDNA or mtDNA markers inherited from our parents. Anthrogenealogy is, therefore, our word of choice for studying deep genealogical origins through genetics means.
ANTHROGENEALOGY: an-thro-ge-ne-al-o-gy Function: noun
Etymology: New Latin from anthrop- +Middle English genealogie, from Middle French, from Late Latin genealogia, from Greek, from genea race, family + -logia -logy; akin to Greek genos.
