New editor of JOGG

The following announcement was written by Dr Ann Turner and is reproduced with her kind permission:

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 Fellow in the Department of Genetics and the School of  Historical Studies at the University of Leicester, where she is the project manager for an interdisciplinary project The Impact of Diasporas on the Making of Britain. Turi has worked on the Y chromosome since 1996 and has concentrated on surnames, the Y chromosome and genetic genealogy (among other studies) for over ten years. More details about her background and interests can be found at http://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/genetics/people/king/turi.

Dr. King will assume her duties in the fall. In the meantime, prospective authors may send manuscripts to me DNACousins at aol.com so they will be in the pipeline when she begins the process of sending articles out for peer review. The current guidelines can be found at http://www.jogg.info/authors.htm, 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.
