Learn about your Family History

An acclaimed new book by award-winning journalist Libby Copeland explores the rapidly evolving phenomenon of home DNA testing through her lens as an Ashkenazi Jew and that of the protagonist, Alice Collins Plebuch, whose parents are Irish American Catholics but whose DNA test indicates lots of Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. In so doing, The Lost Family: How DNA Testing Is Upending Who We Are (Abrams, 2020) illuminates how we think about family, heritage, and ourselves. ​Take a look at the book yourself here.
