"Journal of Genetic Genealogy" is Revived, and Free to Access

Debbie Kennett posted "New Issue of the Revived Journal of Genetic Genealogy" today on her Cruwys News blog.  In it, she notes:
"The first issue (Volume 8 Number 1) of the newly relaunched Journal of Genetic Genealogy (JoGG) is now available online. Some of the articles were published online as preprints towards the end of last year but this is now the complete issue. 
"JOGG is a free open access peer reviewed journal which provides a much-needed platform for publication of articles on all aspects of genetic genealogy..."
The current issue can be found at  The Table of Contents for Volume 8, Number 1:
