"Have you incorporated DNA in your genealogy toolkit? Advanced Genetic Genealogy is the book you've been waiting for! It delivers answers to questions you didn't know you had, in illuminating detail. Invaluable for anyone wanting to make the most of DNA in their research."
"Bravo! A much-needed entry into the field. As an "intermediate" DNA-user, I learned a good bit and was reminded of things that had dropped out of my routine. This is a reference work with topical chapters-easy to consult one chapter when it is particularly relevant to something I am doing. Definitely not an entry-level book, but written with clarity in mind."

Excellent material throughout.
While I tend to purchase virtually every genealogy-oriented DNA book that comes on the market, there are usually written by one author, and while often very useful, rarely cover all issues of greatest interest to me. Said another way, they may be very strong in one area, but not another.
I just recently purchased "Advanced Genetic Genealogy: Techniques and Case Studies" edited by Debbie Parker Wayne, and I simply could not be more pleased with this invaluable addition to my ever-growing DNA reference library. Rather than one author attempting to be "all things to all people," it is actually a collection of (14) widely- recognized subject-matter-experts all writing individual chapters on their own fields of interest and expertise. The result is a highly detailed, yet "very accessible" review of the various technical issues and direct applications involved with DNA testing for genealogical purposes. It is heavily illustrated with full-color diagrams, charts, etc., that are well labeled and captioned, with detailed footnotes throughout. All this is supported with a detailed glossary, recommended additional reading, and a strong index. While I personally use FamilyTreeDNA as my selected labs of choice, numerous references are made to all of the major DNA labs and third-party analysis platforms, to include 23 and me, ancestry DNA, GEDmatch, Yfull, etc.
This volume is so very complete, that it has now become my "go-to" reference for genealogy-related DNA testing issues, and I highly recommend it.
I've had it 2 days and already spent "too many" hours reading it, where I should have been doing something else. I expect more of that to come, and for this to become an invaluable resource gong forward.
