I'll sadly admit that while almost obsessively-driven to acquire a better understanding of how DNA and ancestry works, since high school -- where my eyes first glazed over after an introduction to the Punnett square -- I cannot force my brain to grasp all this "inherited genes" and related info.
After reading Mr. Hill's Guide, however, I have a much firmer grasp on some of these baffling DNA-related concepts. Fortunately, I now have this Guide handy at all times for reference if I have a specific question.
The more I read and begin to understand about DNA and its use in genealogy, the less hopeful I am about breaking past my own personal brick wall; that being my father's paternal line. My father was an only child and I have no brothers, so my surname dies with my sister and me. However, after recently receiving my Ancestry.com DNA results, there are faint glimmers of hope -- hope that indicates I may break through that wall in the next decade or so, as the DNA database grows exponentially, parallel to the family trees in databases such as that of Ancestry.com.
I have just purchased Mr. Hill's autobio "Finding Family", and based on the reviews, I'm confident I'll find it compelling.
