The Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation has been a major vendor in genealogy DNA. The company recently announced a new partnership with Ancestry.com. I published the announcement in an earlier newsletter article at http://goo.gl/STMyX. The announcement states, amongst other things, "In March, Ancestry.com DNA, LLC acquired access to an extensive collection of DNA assets from Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation, a non-profit organization."
Writing in the On-line Journal of Genetics and Genealogy, Steven Perkins quotes a letter he received from Sorenson that clarifies the plans for databases that have been on Sorenson's service. This will be especially important for any customers of the Sorenson Molecular genetic genealogy DNA Databases. It also states that the GeneTree.com web site "will not be continuing."
