Second, business relationships.
Rebekah has a business relationship with Gene by Gene the parent company of Family Tree DNA. She is also an administrator of the Y-DNA Q-M242 project at Family Tree DNA. However, her opinions expressed on this blog are purely her own.
Third, research relationships.
Rebekah has in the past and may in the future collaborate with some of the authors of academic peer-reviewed research articles. When she does so, her name usually appears as a co-author or in the publication acknowledgments. She may act as a peer reviewer in academic and genealogy journals. As a reviewer, her work is anonymous to prevent bias. She does not accept payment for academic authorship or as a reviewer.
Rebekah has an affiliateship with Family Tree DNA. This means that she is paid a small commission for sales resulting from clicks on her links to Family Tree DNA. 100 percent of said commissions are donated to the Y-DNA Q-M242 haplogroup project. There, they are used to help fund DNA testing for project members.
Rebekah encourages donations to her favorite charities. These are One by One Animal Advocates, The Paws Squad, and Avotaynu. She is not paid for linking to their sites. Nor does she have a business relationship with them.
