I am extremely pleased to announce that genetic genealogist, Emily Aulicino has authored a new book, “Genetic Genealogy, the Basics and Beyond.” I’m sure you all know Emily as a long time member of the genetic genealogy community and the author of the blog, dna-genealem’s genetic genealogy.
We have so desperately needed a new up-to-date book that includes not only information about Y-line and mitochondrial DNA, but autosomal DNA as well, how to use the various tools and how to get the most out of your DNA testing experience. After all, no one embarks on this journey to become a geneticist. Instead, from Emily’s book, the experience starts something like this:
“There is an underlying desire in most men and women to know their history; not the history of their culture alone, but their personal background — their ancestors. We often ask ourselves: who are we; from where did we come.”
And from there a genealogist and then a genetic genealogist is born. This book is the birthing guide and is destined to be the Genetic Genealogy Bible.
Finally, in the rapidly evolving field of genetic genealogy an up-to-date resource is here! A Genetic Genealogy Handbook: 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 disprove 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. A Genetic Genealogy Handbook: The Basics and Beyond helps experienced and fledgling researchers become genetic genealogists able to use DNA testing to resolve genealogical roadblocks.

Thanks Roberta for the information. I will order one. The only things I know I have learned from your posted info, Aleda Bunch, and Ron Thompson. Thank goodness for online peope like yourself who willingly shares. And the other thing that helped me to learn a lot about the X Chromosome was the Charting Companion program by Pierre that put it into perspective so that even someone who doesn’t understand much at all can see with my own relatives how somethng works in that one category. I know I keep bringing that up but it opened up a whole world for me to see what you and Aleda Bunch were talking about. Thanks for this tip too.
I will definitely read this book. So many times our genetic history does not match the paper trail. I am finding that many of my Swiss Anabaptist family are of Celtic ancestry.
Thank you, Roberta. I just bought for my tablet. Cannot wait to read it.
Thanks Roberta, just down loaded the Kindle Edition, just what I was looking for.
Just purchased the paperback from amazon.com! Thanks. Your blog is amazing…
Just bought it for my tablet…can’t wait to get started on it.
I also downloaded the Kindle Edition, only $3.99!
