A variety of convergence results for genealogical and line-of-descendent processes are known for exchangeable neutral population genetics models. A general convergence-to-the-coalescent theorem is presented, which works not only for a larger class of exchangeable models but also for a large class of non-exchangeable population models. The coalescence probability, i.e. the probability that two genes, chosen randomly without replacement, have a common ancestor one generation backwards in time, is the central quantity to analyse the ancestral structure.
