DNA and Genealogy Research

DNA testing has become a popular topic with genealogists but many times the results are confusing. It is a powerful tool, but I am one of the many who find it challenging to educate myself with the science of DNA.  I did not want to become a genetic scientist, and just wanted to work on my family history. The book explains my methods using non-scientific terms and does not discuss Chromosome browsers, haplogroups, or SNPs. I had a brick wall, and I used my genealogical skills and traditional sources with my DNA results to solve the mystery.
