Voice of America spotlights genetic genealogy

The Voice of America recently covered Family Tree DNA in Houston.

"DNA is nothing more than a tool in the toolkit for the genealogist who has run into a paper trail roadblock," says Bennett Greenspan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Family Tree DNA, the Houston-based company that is considered the world leader in genetic testing for genealogical research. "With DNA testing we are able to unravel that history book that is contained within the cells of all of us."

One of those interviewed by VOA, Adrian Williams, had also presented a fascinating session at the recent Third International Conference on Genetic Genealogy in Houston. In his talk, Williams presented ways to get people involved in a surname project – his Williams project has some 350 participants, so he must be doing something right!
