Finding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNA

by Richard Hill Author

The development of DNA technology and the ability to use something as simple as a strand of hair to trace your genetic lineage is a relatively new (and totally earth-shattering) discovery. In this remarkable book, author Richard Hill makes use of this technology in a quest to discover his biological family, hidden from him by birth records sealed at his adoption. Calling upon geneticists, friends, the internet, and many other resources, the reader finds themselves swept along in Hill's search for his biological identity. At once a riveting story, an explication of the science of genetics and DNA, and a guide for other folks engaged in similar searches for biological parents, Finding Family is a rollercoaster of a read.
