Since 2012, Richard Hill's book Finding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNA has been one of my favorite books, describing how to use DNA for family history research and Richard's personal quest to identify his biological parents. Most reviews of the book describe it as a page-turner that holds the reader's interest like the best novels do. Many of us stayed awake reading long into the night because we could not put the book down.
A new Amazon feature allows a preview of the book to be read without the necessity of downloading a Kindle app to your computing device.
Richard's link to this preview at http://amzn.to/1nyZc5w allows you to read several chapters of the book. The preview will pull you in so you want to read the rest of the story. The Kindle version purchased through this preview link includes Richard's Guide to DNA Testing: How to Identify Ancestors, Confirm Relationships, and Measure Ethnic Ancestry Through DNA Testing as a bonus.
If you decide to purchase the book, a free Kindle app is available for handheld, laptop, and desktop devices. Click this link to download the windows computer version. Search for "kindle" on your favorite app store for links to download to smart phones and other handheld devices. I've used a kindle app on my Android tablet and phone and Windows 7 laptop for many years with no major problems. I love being able to take a whole library in my bag with no added weight like I had when I had to carry printed books with me.
