Re: Looking for a Jewish Genealogy DNA Book #dna
For people who understand the basics of DNA testing, especially as it relates to our particular endogamous population, and want to take a deep dive into figuring out mysteries in their own family, Israel's book is a must-read. It is not for beginners though! And to try to replicate his techniques, you will need to talk as many known relatives as possible into DNA testing.
I second the recommendation for Lara Diamond's blog, and Kitty Cooper is also great -- https://blog.kittycooper.com/ -- and her most recent post is particularly relevant to those getting started.
