Descrizione prodotto


Genetics is a complicated subject, and most geneticists are profoundly incapable of explaining the subject clearly. Debbie Kennett is unparalleled in her ability to make complex science beautifully clear, and in her enthusiasm to explain how this subject really works. If you re interested in using genetics for your family tree, or even if you re already grappling with it, this book is guaranteed to make an immense and refreshing addition to your knowledge. --Anthony Adolph, Genealogist author and broadcaster

DNA and Social Networking is a timely and much needed guide showing family historians how to build up a network of researchers and helpers. --Chris Pomery - Author of DNA and Family History and Family History in the Genes

5.0 su 5 stelle Insightful and Accurate 7 marzo 2012
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I hold a Ph.D. in Biology and have taught at the college and university level for over 30 years. Debbie Kennett's new offering DNA and Social Networking is a great guide for anyone interested in understanding the link between our genes and our ancestry including the deep ancestry of our beginnings as a human race. The text is written for ease of understanding and she clearly explains what DNA studies can provide and what they cannot provide to the participant. If you don't want to bog down in the details of molecular biology then this is a good book to expand your understanding and knowledge in a field that is going to be one of the growth areas for genealogists for decades to come.

4.0 su 5 stelle Informative, yet most useful for newbies 17 luglio 2013
Di Carolina Magnolia - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book is ideal as a primer for someone who is just now integrating technology and social media into their genealogical pursuits. As with anything relating to technology, much of the content is outdated (broken links, discontinued products and services, revised products, new products). Many of the sources are UK-based. The value of the book, however, is in the author's explanation of balancing the potential benefits of incorporating social media with the need to be aware of how much information one is sharing (personal and research).

I have been researching genealogy for 20 years, using software for 17 years, and using social media for 10 years. I have had my work stolen and presented (with portions written in the first-person copied verbatim) as the thief's own work. I highly recommend this text for those who are wanting to incorporate social media. Social media is wonderful! But, please, follow her pointers.

For those with a similar background incorporating technology and social media into your research, you may find the appendices of sites most valuable. I found a link to a DNA chart most valuable. It was information I already had, but presented in a visual that "clicked" with me more than the pie charts, etc. I believe there are many other hidden gems - like the DNA chart - for the experienced users, too.

This would make a great gift for someone who is new to genealogy, using DNA results, or incorporating social media/Web 2.0 with their research. The digital version (for Kindle or Kindle apps) allows the reader to click on the hyperlink and immediately explore the referenced site.

I would have given 5 stars if there was a link to a blog with updated information.

5.0 su 5 stelle It is an excellent introduction to DNA (first half of the book) 3 gennaio 2015
Di Owen M. McKinney - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book was published in the UK, but nonetheless it is applicable to the USA. It is an excellent introduction to DNA (first half of the book). The second half deals with social networking (UK and USA-based). Superbly printed and illustrated. I highly recommend it. I've already gone back to reread it - both sections! In the social media section, it not only tells you what is available, but explains how to do it. Excellent book for someone just beginning the "voyage" to learn about social networking sites and what they do.

4.0 su 5 stelle Lots of information. 19 dicembre 2012
Di Saelj A Nilsson - Pubblicato su

I have personally done a DNA test and this book helped me to figure out some of the results and all the information I got thru this test. The book brings out also how to do genealogical research in the US and Great Britain, which is not relevant to me, but the other information made very well up for it.

This was an interesting and informative book. The explanations on how it all works were clear and easy to understand. The resources were largely UK oriented, but some were applicable to the US. Would recommend for those new to DNA as a search tool.
