    This is a fantastic book It's an overview of DNA testing options and how to use them in your genealogy research to answer specific uestions Specifically Y DNA mtDNA atDNA and X DNA testing There is a LOT of information in this book The book is similar to a text book with exercises at the end of each chapter and extensive Appendices with additional information I believe this book isn't going to be digested in one sitting and than likely repeated reviews and practice are necessary to master the content This is a fairly up to date book however recent changes May 2018 as a result of privacy laws in the EU which removed several online tools from the web are not reflected in the book The book covered the most common DNA testing houses and their tools and was VERY informative in many cases showing me things that I was unaware of on each site The book also incorporates helps for documenting the results of DNA testing in traditional written genealogies I appreciate this section but it could use emphasis The book did include helpful pointers to find additional references on this topic though Highly recommended

    Genetic Genealogy in Practice written by Blaine T Bettinger and Debbie Parker Wayne and published in 2016 by National Genealogical Society This is a great introduction to various aspects of DNA basic details testing and interpretation I have done a lot of autosomal testing and a little of both mtDNA and Y DNA and appreciated the reviews I found myself wishing I could be studying my own results rather than trying to figure out someone else's but I guess that's to be expected There was a little too much emphasis on Native American results Both authors are well known respected experts in this field and I will continue to learn from them

    Blaine Bettinger and Debbie Parker Wayne are two of the foremost genetic genealogists Here he's taken a complex subject and boiled it down to concrete examples that are easier to follow This is of a workbook and there are different uestions to answer that help a genealogist work through from DNA basics to complex examples He covers AncestryDNA FTDNA and 23andMe so there's a good spectrum of the different testing companiesIf you are serious about incorporating DNA research into your family trees this is a great book to start you off

    Something that I perused through Looks to be a great resource because it presents problems that others have faced in DNA research and forces the reader to think about how they would solve the problem using the information they have read

    Some of the exercises was difficult to do as the process wasn't fully explained in the chapter It really reuires a person to have a better understanding of DNA than a beginner

    This excellent workbook by two industry experts covers genetic genealogy theory and current tests and tools About one third of the book comprises exercises with solutions exploring how to apply the theory in practice to a wide range of genealogical problems The book also covers how to present results professionally I would recommend it to genealogists with an academic mindset but anyone with an interest in the subject can learn from it
