A simple and intuitive method of deriving some properties of finite homogeneous continuous-time Markov chains is given. These chains have absorbing barriers, and arise in the study of population genetics. The method involves the representation of such a process in terms of a discrete Markov chain, and a series of waiting times, which reconstruct the original time scale. An example from population genetics is given.
