Color Coding DNA Matches: Lawrence-Little Ahnentafel Color Schemes, MRCA Pedigree Tables

A Lawrence-Little MRCA Pedigree Table displays confirmed DNA matches as groups with shared most recent common ancestor couples in a pedigree chart; a Lawrence-Little color scheme conveys genetic and genealogical information with color: the hue of a child is an mix of hues of parents; the intensity of color increases each generation. When a Lawrence-Little color scheme is paired with a chromosome segment map, it is easier to see how unknown match segments may be related to known, charted matches.
