Editorial Reviews

Review

“An engaging, page-turning memoir that thoughtfully puts together the pieces of a family puzzle.”
Kirkus Reviews

"Impressively informative, exceptionally well written, an inherently fascinating and compelling read from beginning to end, Finding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNA is an extraordinary account."
Midwest Book Review

"Mr. Hill has the rare talent of telling his family research and story interestingly enough to keep the reader engaged. He covers many years of searching, but moves the story along nicely. Mr. Hill offers his story from the perspective of an adoptee. It’s a different way to tell the age-old story of wondering about your ancestors, and it’s interesting to read about his feelings about his biological roots, the parents who raised him, and the wonderings of why the events of his life happened. A very satisfying read."

"Impressively informative, exceptionally well written, an inherently fascinating and compelling read from beginning to end, Finding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNA is an extraordinary account. While unreservedly recommended, especially for community and academic library collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that Finding Family is also available in digital book format and as a complete and unabridged audio book."

James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

At 18 years old, Richard Hill accidentally discovered a deeply hidden family secret: he was adopted. Assuming he would never know any details, he was startled to learn many years later that he had a brother out there somewhere. What then began as a search for his mother and brother turned into a decades long search for the identity of his biological father.

Thwarted for years by sealed records, lies, and cover-ups, Richard eventually turned to a series of new DNA tests designed for genealogists. His groundbreaking use of this new science to uncover the name of his birth father was reported on the front page of The Wall Street Journal. Subsequently, newer DNA tests would lead him to an even more startling conclusion.

Richard has made it his personal mission to share what he learns with other adoptees and genealogists. He does that through his web site, DNA-Testing-Adviser.com, social media, presentations, and now his books.

His memoir, Finding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNA, was named a Finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards. The electronic version was awarded a gold medal in the Global Ebook Awards.

His "Guide to DNA Testing" eBook provides an easy-to-understand overview of genetic genealogy. Readers quickly learn how to identify ancestors, confirm relationships, and measure their ethnic ancestry.
