After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information on joining the meeting.

The book explores the culture of genealogy, the science of DNA, and the business of DNA testing, all while tracing the story of one woman, her unusual results, and a relentless methodical drive for answers that becomes a thoroughly modern genetic detective story.

The book investigates how home DNA testing has impacted many communitites, including adoptees, the donor conceived, and those who didn't start out with questions about their families - but found questions posed by their DNA results.
