It’s not exactly breaking news that Ancestry.com has acquired GeneTree.com and the assets of the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation. See here. But it was curious to me that yesterday within 45 minutes I received ending reports from both Sorenson and GeneTree. In my early dabblings in online DNA research, I had used both Sorenson and GeneTree. I was more attracted to Sorenson because it seemed to be “more scientific” than GeneTree. Additionally, SMGF had one of the most readable and informative DNA newsletters. I never really warmed up to GeneTree. For information on what’s going on with each of them as they become part of AncestryDNA, see the links below.
