Bryan Sykes will present his comprehensive genetic portrait of America in his new book, DNA USA.
We crave traceable links to our past and genealogy delivers those links. But in our country, a land of new starts and reinventions, American family trees can be frustrating for their shallow roots. So Sykes decided to dig deeper and he traveled across the country meeting (and swabbing) genealogists, anthropologists, celebrities, and average Americans and has painted a fascinating genetic portrait of our nation in his new book.
Bryan Sykes, a professor of human genetics at the University of Oxford and founder of Oxford Ancestors, is the author of The seven daughters of Eve and Saxons, Vikings, and Celts. He lives in England. del.icio.us Facebook Google StumbleUpon Twitter Yahoo
