Have you considered doing a DNA test? If you have then listen to this podcast. Award winning author and journalist, Libby Copeland,  explains how DNA tests work, which one is best and what you need to consider and do before you take the test. She shares some of the stories from her book "The Lost Family: How DNA testing is upending who we are", the good and bad surprises people discovered after their tests. We discuss genetic genealogy and how it helps find missing people and how DNA is not who you are.
