Product description


A gripping memoir.--Emily Sweeney "Boston Globe"

"A courageous personal account, The Stranger in My Genes brings science and genealogy together in a powerful story of family secrets. Bill Griffeth has infused his passion for the unfettered truth into riveting revelation. I couldn't put it down."--Mary Tedesco, co-host of Genealogy Roadshow "Boston Globe"

Product Description

Bill Griffeth, longtime genealogy buff, takes a DNA test that has an unexpected outcome: "If the results were correct, it meant that the family tree I had spent years documenting was not my own." Bill undertakes a quest to solve the mystery of his origins, which shakes his sense of identity. As he takes us on his journey, we learn about choices made by his ancestors, parents, and others, and we see Bill measure and weigh his own difficult choices as he confronts the past.
