DNA and family history : how genetic testing can advance your genealogical research / Chris Pomery.

Pomery, Chris. (Author).


Annotation In the wake of highly-publicised scientific breakthroughs in using genetics to establish family connections, genealogists began to see potential for their own research. Now many are finding that organising tests is a relatively straightforward matter -- and that comparing the DNA signatures of individuals can reveal startling information on families, surnames and origins.
