Re: BYU Molecular Genealogy Study
I did mention that the 4 generation requirement applied to only those born
in the United States. That is what the letter from the Molecular Research
Group stated. However, since that time Sandy Heninger has been in contact
with the Research Group and she was told that they did require 4 complete
generations for the United States and Canada since both countries have
similar immigration patterns. They are updating their literature to include
Canada. For those born in countries other than these two, they will accept
less than the 4 generations (example: from Asia, South America, Eastern
Europe, etc.) No one is limited to four generations. They do encourage
more if you have them. They would like the information on a floppy in
gedcom format if there are more than 4 generations. If you are submitting 4
generations only, a pedigree chart (printed or hand written) is sufficient.
