Forensic scientists and genealogists share the same goal - to find out who was who, and who did what and when. In explaining how to analyze photographs, to mine databases, and to use DNA analysis to reveal family history, 'Forensic Genealogy' emphasizes the creative parts of an investigation over the mechanics.

Have you ever considered looking at the edges of an old photograph to find out who is in the picture? Have you ever considered epidemics as a source of genealogical information? How can you use DNA to connect your family with historical events long in the past? These are only a few of the surprising connections Forensic Genealogy offers for investigating the where, who, when, and why of your family history.

'Forensic Genealogy' offers innovative new tools for getting the most information out of your reference materials. It also suggests many unusual places to look for family history. Examples of the innovative research techniques offered by this book can be found on the website, where the author hosts weekly photo quizzes. After reading this book, you will never look at your research materials the same way again!

'Now I have had a chance to read through this book. I only wish that I had done so earlier..... All in all, "Forensic Genealogy" provides a fresh view of the many methods and objects that genealogists have used for decades. This one is a "keeper." I enjoyed reading "Forensic Genealogy" and suspect that you will also.
