The Cultural Phenomenon of Home DNA Testing
Presented by author and journalist, Libby Copeland. Register to receive a Zoom link.
This presentation will explore the extraordinary cultural sensation of home DNA testing, which is redefining family history. It will draw on Libby Copeland’s years of research for her latest book, The Lost Family: How DNA Testing is Upending Who We Are (Abrams 2020), which The Wall Street Journal calls “a fascinating account of lives dramatically affected by genetic sleuthing.” With more than 35 million people having been tested, a tipping point has been reached. Virtually all Americans are affected whether they have been tested or not, and millions have been impacted by significant revelations in their immediate families.
