Richard Hill is the creator of the DNA-Testing-Adviser.com web site. He recently created a 12-page overview of DNA testing that may be of interest to genealogists and adoptees alike. The full title is "How to Identify Ancestors and Confirm Relationships through DNA Testing."
The booklet gives a short description of each of the four major types of DNA tests of interest to genealogists and adoptees and then provides a side-by-side comparison of each.
I found the booklet to be easy to read. That is, it is not full of medical and biological mumbo-jumbo that is common to other books about DNA. This won't help anyone who is already a DNA expert. However, if your are new to the subject and are trying to learn the basics, "How to Identify Ancestors and Confirm Relationships through DNA Testing" should give you a great start.
The booklet is free and contains no advertising. You can download it at:
I'd call this a great resource for anyone who wishes to learn more about DNA. Congratulations to Richard Hill for creating it.
