Richard Hill’s innovative use of DNA Testing has been front-page news in The Wall Street Journal, the Grand Rapids Press, and the Detroit News. His web site, DNA Testing Adviser, is a one-stop resource for anyone interested in this subject.
His book, “Finding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNA,” was named a Finalist in the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. The electronic version was awarded a gold medal in the 2013 Global Ebook Awards. Although Richard grew up in Central Michigan, he ultimately traced his biological roots to the suburbs of Detroit. Since all the names and places in his book are real, you will surely recognize some of them.
