    DescriptionAccording to American Demographics, 113 million Americans have begun to trace their roots, making genealogy the second most popular hobby in the country, enthusiasts clamour for new information from dozens of subscription-based Web sites, e-mail newsletters, and magazines. For these eager roots-seekers looking to take their searches to the next level, DNA testing is the answer. After a brief introduction to genealogy and genetics fundamentals, the authors explain what kind of information the tests can provide, how to interpret the results, and how the tests work - it doesn't involve digging up your dead relatives. Getting results is as simple as swabbing the inside of your cheek and popping a sample in the mail. The authors reveal exactly what is - and isn't-possible with genetic testing. They include case studies of both famous historical mysteries and examples of ordinary folks whose exploration of genetic genealogy has enabled them to trace their roots.
