My reaction to the book was, "Wow! I didn't realize DNA was such a confusing subject."

Very Helpful Guide

I like the book so much that I gave it away, then had to buy another so that I could do the Ancestry course.
I'm still unclear on how to interpret X-chromosome matches. Maybe reading that chapter a few more times will help.

I have found it helpful but haven’t solved my issue yet. Will keep trying.

I love this book. It allows you to get right into your particular DNA challenge and learn what you need to know, as you need it. Plus, it has a very refreshing, accessible, and inviting style.

Thank you! We're glad to be a part of your DNA learning!

A DNA Guide to an Initial Genealogical Search

I appreciate your honest/realistic comments about possible research results with DNA. The flipping from front to back spoiled my train of thought until I put tabs on some pages. The "What You Need to Know" should be part of the forward to the book. Many, but not all, of your in-depth explanations would better serve your learners if they were placed with the topic instead of in the back of the book. One reading just won't do it - I use it as a reference myself, and I plan to give a copy s a gift.

Thanks for your feedback, we will look into those changes for future revisions!
