  • JoGG announces a new editor: Dr. Turi King

    The editorial board of the Journal of Genetic Genealogy (JoGG) is very pleased to announce that Dr. Turi King has accepted the position of editor.

    Dr. King's PhD thesis topic was The relationship between British surnames and Y-chromosomal haplotypes and she is also co-author (with George Redmonds and David Hey) of the book Surnames, DNA and Family History. Dr. King is currently a Research Associate in the Department of Genetics at the University of Leicester, where she is the manager for an interdisciplinary project The Impact of Diasporas in the Making of Britain. The scope of that project makes her familiar with many aspects of genetic genealogy. More details about her background and interests can be found at http://www.le.ac.uk/users/tek2/tek2.html

    Dr. King will assume her duties in the fall. In the meantime, prospective authors may send manuscripts to me [email protected] so they will be in the pipeline when she begins the process of sending articles out for peer review. The current guidelines are in Instructions for Authors, although Dr. King is at liberty to revise these. Our goal is to make JoGG a respected and even a favored destination for authors and readers alike.

          Thanks for sharing this news Ann!
          Dr. King is also directly involved in the Leicester University British Romany DNA study which I am a participant in that study.
