Prospects for genetic genealogy

An interesting and very readable article Philately & DNA (pdf) by Robert M. Bell and Robert S. Blackett, from the March 2012 issue of American Philatelist, offers hope that as technology advances and costs decrease recovering DNA, and not only mitochondrial DNA, from sources such as licked stamps and envelopes might become a reralistic option for genealogy.
