Library Review - Traced
Dr Jeanson’s book Traced, which can be found in the Church Library, digs into the history of people as uncovered through our DNA. While occasionally a bit technical, the book is accessible to the average layperson, especially with the help of several pages of graphs, pictures, and illustrations.
A few interesting insights:
- We are all a lot more connected than we think and much more recently than we may think.
- Native Americans are descended from Central Asians who arrived in the Americas less than 2000 years ago.
- The genetic family trees all connect around 4500 years ago, which is the most likely date for the worldwide flood. This is to be expected if we all descend from Noah and his sons.
- Your physical features can't always tell you where your ancestors are from. (Someone who looks Caucasian can have a recent dark skinned ancestor or vice versa).
- The descendants of ancient civilizations (Egyptian, Romans, Mayan, Persian) can be found in places you may not expect.
