Did I enjoy this book? Well, let’s just say when I finished reading it (staying up way later than I should have), I read it a second time to make sure I caught everything.
Pickholtz approaches DNA differently than many genealogists do. Rather than using DNA in a more self-centered way to find relatives, he uses it to connect distinct branches. He uses DNA from known cousins to both add additional ammunition to posited relationships as well as to completely destroy hypotheses. He has particular goals and clearly lays out his thought process allowing the reader to utilize these methods as well.
