Book Description

28 April 2014
In Finding Your Ancestors Through DNA, author Darvin Martin shows that DNA testing is a reliable way to gather information about one s forebears. In understandable language, Martin shows how DNA testing works, and how it can lead into one s deep ancestry. In other words, we can now go far beyond where the paper trail ends to discover our own family histories, says Martin, a scientist who has tested nearly 300 individuals in a DNA pilot project. Are you curious about your ancestors? Do you wonder who preceded your grandparents, and where they lived? Do you ever think about what migrations your forebears might have joined? Have you thought about what genealogical streams fed into your own? Because of DNA, it is now possible for each of us to discover the answers to these questions for ourselves. In Finding Your Ancestors Through DNA: Using Tools of Science to Trace Family History, author Darvin Martin shows that DNA testing is a reliable way to gather information about one s foreparents. In understandable language, Martin shows how DNA testing works. Many Americans do not live in the communities where their parents and grandparents did. Many do not know their family tree beyond their grandparents, or even their parents. And yet many 87%, according to recent surveys have a relentless urge to discover their own family history and, through that, a sense of belonging. Martin, with a long interest in family history, conducts DNA testing for OneDNATree, a DNA pilot project that constructs family lineages from before the time of surnames. It is now possible to extend whatever small bits of genealogy and family history any one of us knows to a whole new level, that of one s deep ancestry. In other words, we can now go far beyond where the paper trail ends, he says. DNA results can appear confusing and inconsequential without the means to interpret them. This guide seeks to answer the essential questions asked by everyone seeking DNA to discover their ancestors.
