Carolyn Abraham explores the stunning power and ethical
pitfalls of using genetic tests to answer questions of
genealogy--by cracking the genome of her own family.
Recently, tens of thousands
of people have been drawn to mail-order DNA tests to learn about
their family roots. Abraham investigates whether this burgeoning
new science can help solve 2 mysteries that have haunted her
multi-racial family for more than a century. Both hinge on her
enigmatic great-grandfathers--a hero who died young and a scoundrel
who disappeared. Can the DNA they left behind reveal their stories
from beyond the grave?
