Guide to DNA Testing: How to Identify Ancestors, Confirm Relationships, and Measure Ethnic Ancestry through DNA Testing
by Richard Hill


I downloaded it onto my Kindle from Amazon for a couple of quid.

It's really comprehensive and I think would be particularly useful if you are considering taking a test but are unsure which test to take or what company to use.

If you have recently taken a DNA test from any of the four major companies there is a brief explanation of what the results mean
Davis - Berkshire & London
Sutcliffe - Yorkshire & London
Harrington - Ireland and London
Fuller - Cambridgeshire and Essex
Waldron/Waldren - Devon & London
Frisby and Lee - Leicestershire
Hollingsworth - Essex
Williams - Ireland? and London
Ellis, Reed & Temple - London
Lane - ?
Surplice - Cambridgeshire
Elwood - Cambridgeshire
