"Excellent features of this book, besides its clear text and useful diagrams, are crisp, boxed summaries at the end of each chapter and a supporting website."

"Pomery does a nice job contrasting genetic families that might be derived from a single ancestor with those that might be derived from multiple ancestors. He also discusses the origins of various classes of surnames which is important in understand this issue."

"The author has filed a void in the market with this 'manual' that provides sufficient theory to enable those that are managing, or want to manage a DNA project (or even those that just want to participate in one) and provides the 'workshop manual' approach to how to go about it."


"Like its predecessor, it provides the very latest advice on a fast-moving subject, in compact format and at an affordable price. The glossary of terms in this confusing field is particularly good."
