“This is the most thrilling time in the history of genealogy. Which may sound a little like we’re in the sexiest era of professional bowling.”

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.”
