CHROMOSOME MAPPING: CLOSE FAMILY
The chromosome and segment maps on this page for me and close family members are works in progress and will be added to as additional relatives undergo DNA testing. In addition to providing visualization before phasing our data, I'll be using these chromosome maps to help to identify which branch of the family various triangulated groups of DNA matches are related to.
See Chromosome Maps for details of the tools used to create these – thank you Kitty Cooper for making them available.

Chromosome Mapping of Small Groups of Family Members – Paternal
Plotting out segments for half-identical regions (HIR) and fully-identical regions (FIR) for my parents and each of their siblings together with matching segments with close relatives is helpful for identifying recombination points on the chromosomes, and in some cases for inferring which ancestor a particular segment originates from, even when DNA testing with a known relative has not been conducted. In addition, the "opposite" parent (my grandparent) for each of my parents can be inferred (and phased) once the DNA from one of their parents has been determined.
The following chromosome segment maps have been created with the paternal side of my family:
