Abstract

The central problem of the study is to estimate the genetic effects of consanguineous marriage. This is done by comparison of a group of marriages of first cousins with a control group of families containing a sister or brother of one of those first cousins. By such a process, genetic differences in the children are made patent and an insight is gained into the larger problem of what constitutes the gene pool of the United States.
