Human generations

Can DNA show us how far a person is removed from a certain ancestor?

Let's say there are two families, A and B. In the A lineage, women usually had babies in a relatively young age, thus they produced more offsprings. In B family, women had their babies in an older age, so the recent generation has lesser ancestors.

1, Can DNA show us the difference of these two families?
2, What are the evolutionary advantages or disadvantages of birth rate / the number of generations?

Medfags, explain something - why has the recent guidance been to delay prostate DREs until age 50? It was 40 for a long time, and sometimes even earlier in previous decades. Were generations of doctors actually fingering men's assholes for no real medical purpose, or is 50 too late to start?

Everyone on /sci/ needs to understand what psychopathy is and how bad it is for our world.
It's important to note that psychopathy is distinct from sociopathy/anti-social personality disorder, but is connected to them; psychopathy being the "greater" of the two.

>Each of the 20 items in the PCL-R is scored on a three-point scale, with a rating of 0 if it does not apply at all, 1 if there is a partial match or mixed information, and 2 if there is a reasonably good match to the offender. This is said to be ideally done through a face-to-face interview together with supporting information on lifetime behavior (e.g. from case files), but is also done based only on file information. It can take up to three hours to collect and review the information.

>Out of a maximum score of 40, the cut-off for the label of psychopathy is 30 in the United States and 25 in the United Kingdom. A cut-off score of 25 is also sometimes used for research purposes.
People with no criminal backgrounds normally score around 5. Many non-psychopathic criminal offenders score around 22.
