Abstract:

"Finally, in the rapidly evolving field of genetic genealogy an up-to-date resource is here! Genetic Genealogy: The Basics and Beyond provides genealogists with the knowledge and confidence to use DNA testing for family research. The book guides genealogists in understanding various tests and determining what DNA segments came from which ancestor. The book explains how DNA testing helps when written records stop and discusses how testing proves or disproves oral family history. Learn which tests help adoptees; understand why you resemble your relatives and how testing can connect you with cousins you never knew. Discover how to encourage potential cousins to test and learn guidelines for becoming a project administrator, genetic genealogy speaker or facilitator for your genealogical society's DNA interest group. Whether you are an experienced or fledgling researcher this handbook can help you use DNA testing to resolve genealogical roadblocks"--Back cover.
