Trace Your Roots with DNA by Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak & Ann Turner

ISBN – 1594860068

This book is a genealogical text and not light reading. It is also an incredibly useful and organised book on what is a rather complex subject.

The book deals with the concept that all women can be traced back to seven theoretical women – The Seven Daughters of Eve – who all lived in different places in the world, at different times. There are details on the setting up and contributing to a DNA project and a rather useful set of appendices dealing with resources and DNA testing companies.

This book was borrowed from the library, but I shall be purchasing my own copy as I want to undertake further reading and exploring of this fascinating subject.
