Going to Extremes?

Just what are you willing to do to find the missing pieces of your family history puzzle? Have you ever done something that you consider to be “extreme” in the pursuit of that elusive ancestor?

If so, you may find yourself relating to this article: “The DNA Age: Stalking Strangers’ DNA to Fill in the Family Tree,” (especially if you are heavily involved in DNA testing) The article can be found in the online version of today’s New York Times.

I am not going to comment on the issue of ethics that is raised in this piece, or argue for a side. But, I must admit, I found it to be quite fascinating.
