Advanced Genetic Genealogy Book

Advanced Genetic Genealogy Book

I should let you all know, in case you missed it, there is a new book on DNA which just came out. There are several beginner and intermediate books on DNA for genealogy already available. But to my knowledge this is the only one so far focused on advanced topics. There are 14 chapters, each by a different author with lots of genetic genealogy experience. I wrote Chapter 1: Lessons Learned from Triangulating a Genome. The Editor, Debbie Parker Wayne, and I were at the FamilyTreeDNA Genetic Genealogy Conference in Houston, TX on 23 March when we found out the book was available on Amazon. So Debbie made an impromptu announcement with the proof copy she had…
