"There are very few titles on my book shelf in my genealogy office that I refer to constantly. I know that The Family Tree Guide to DNA Testing and Genetic Genealogy will be one of those titles for years to come. I don't think I could have made some of my recent progress in my research without the valuable information provided by a knowledgeable DNA [expert] like Blaine Bettinger." --Thomas MacEntee
"Informative. Understandable. Solid." --Judy Russell, The Legal Genealogist
"[Bettinger] describes, in the simplest of terms, how to begin using genetic technologies to connect with both close and more distant members of our great human family." --Jennifer Wagner for Genome magazine

The three types of DNA testing are discussed, sorting out the advantages and limitations of each. The author leads you through how to interpret your own results, and how to use available tools to get the most thorough analysis. He discusses ethical issues surrounding "surprises" in your DNA and searching for birth parents. Simple charts illustrate the points he makes.
Whether you are a professional genealogist or just curious about your genetic makeup, this book will be an excellent reference source for many years to come.
I highly recommend it. When this is completed another book by Blaine is the next logical building block. It is "Genetic Genealogy in Practice" available only thru National Genealogical Society, Special Topics Series. It contains many exercises that really help to understand all the concepts necessary for using DNA to match relatives.
