More Famous Roots: New York TimesAmy Harmon recently wrote another article in a series she's been doing on various aspects of genetic genealogy. This one's called Who's Your Great-Great-Great-Great-Granddaddy? and talks of genealogists who are using DNA testing to discover connections to famous people. While it's not an especially common practice at the moment, I predict it will become a growing factor in people's motivation to dabble in the genetic arena.
Ms. Harmon was also kind enough to give a shout out to Trace Your Roots with DNA: Using Genetic Tests to Explore Your Family Tree in the follow-up Q&A session she did with readers.
