IN THE NEWS
FRANK SLAVIN, PUGLIST
Welcome to the Slaven Genealogy Exchange! Our purpose is to be a central location to collect and exchange information for Slaven, Slevin, Slavin, Slavey, and other surname variations. As a registered one-name study, the scope of this exchange is world wide. We hope there's something here for the beginning genealogist, the old hand, and the merely curious!
A couple news books have been added to the bookshelf page. One is a collection of family letters from the war and home fronts during WWII, the other one of the newer books on the Andrews Raiders from the Civil War.
It appears that the blog may have been hacked, so it's been taken offline for the time being. I plan on bringing the posts back as normal web pages, without the WordPress blog framework...
Here's an interesting blog post about AncestryDNA's latest announcement about their autosomal DNA testing. Roberta is one of the leading bloggers and experts on genealogical DNA testing. I have nothing against autosomal testing-- I've been tested at both FamilyTreeDNA and 23andMe, and have uploaded my data to GEDmatch. I intend to work up some kind of a &Slaven Autosomal DNA Project& this summer. But Roberta's blog should be mandatory reading for anyone thinking of springing for an autosomal DNA test after being swept off their feet by Ancestry's announcement.

I'm a software engineer for a company in the Des Moines suburbs. Besides genealogy, I'm also involved with collie rescue. I'd love to spend much more time working on this website but until retirement in 5 years or a lottery jackpot win, it's going to have to remain a hobby.
