Veteran genealogist Israel Pickholtz describes his personal journey in which he explores the intersection of documentary genealogy and the latest developments in autosomal DNA. He brings to the task an openness for possibilities on the one hand, as well as a passion for rigor on the other. I recommend the book to genealogists — novice and expert alike — seeking a friendly armchair companion in their own journeys. The sometimes conflicting and ambiguous results of his documentary and DNA research represents the future of genealogy.
