The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy

Es; and advice on choosing the right test to answer your specific genealogy uestions Once you've taken a DNA test this guide will demystify and explain how to interpret DNA test results including how to understand ethnicity estimates and haplogroup designations navigate suggested cousin matches and use. This is essentially a text book for a class you teach yourself I walked into it with a scattered and decent sense of what DNA can tell me as a prospective genealogist and I finished it with a much fuller grounding There s a lot I have to go back and get down clearly but I m solid enough with all of this that I could tell an absolute beginner the differences between the commercially available DNA testsThere s not a whole lot to say than that Bettinger does what he promises he ll do The charts are clear his language is straightforward and I sense that some of the detailed discussions will be useful if I ever pursue some of these uestions in an applied wayI understand that this is the definitive book on the subject at least at this moment I m sure this will be dated within a few years the science is evolving as Bettinger clearly and intriguingly explains and much of the approach here is tied to the commercial offerings of 23andme Ancestrycom and Family Tree DNA which will almost certainly change rapidly to meet new consumer demand but that s fineIf like me you couldn t find a single place to get all the answers this is that place It s going on my shelf and I expect I ll be consulting it
