By: Wise Media Group
Easy to read and hard to put down, Finding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNA is the first book to chronicle the paradigm-shifting application of genetic genealogy to adoption search.
Kirkus Reviews calls the book, "An engaging, page-turning memoir that thoughtfully puts together the pieces of a family puzzle."
Whether you're searching for your own roots or just craving a darn good read, Finding Family is a book you will likely devour in one sitting ... and wholeheartedly recommend to others.
In the vein of a classic mystery, Hill gathers the seemingly scant evidence surrounding the circumstances of his birth. At his adoptive father's deathbed, he discovers shocking information that leads him to methodically chase down leads, which sometimes yield poignant glimpses of his birth parents, sometimes garner resistance, and as frequently flat-line in disappointment. As his resolve shores up, the author also avails of new friends, genealogists, the Internet, and the latest DNA tests in the new field of genetic genealogy. As he closes in on the truth of his ancestry, he is able to construct a living, breathing portrait of the young woman who was faced with the decision to forsake her rights to her child, and ultimately the man whose identity had remained hidden for decades.

During the course of Hill's mission, Finding Family offers guidance, insight, and motivation for anyone engaged in a similar mission, from ways to obtain information to the many networks that can facilitate adoption searches. Best of all, the author demystifies how DNA and genetic genealogy can produce irrefutable results in determining genetic connections.
Richard Hill's groundbreaking use of DNA testing in adoption search was featured on the front page of The Wall Street Journal. His DNA Testing Adviser web site makes genetic genealogy understandable to all.
