Have you considered taking a DNA test to find out where your family is from? I sure have. I suspect that soon I’ll be among the millions of people who have done so. I’m glad I read It’s All Relative by A.J. Jacobs first though because it provides background information about the testing industry. In addition, Jacobs reflects on the surprises he discovered – the sort any of us could find – when he dug into his family’s history. Jacobs’ writing is entertaining, or, as the Washington Post says, “mostly endearing, occasionally annoying but always well-intentioned and, in the final analysis, indispensable.”
