Our library purchases little material directly relevant to genealogical research, though certain items can certainly be helpful.  I am attaching a PDF copy of a journal article which provides an overview of "genetic genealogy," and it is the most layperson-friendly article I can find in our databases.  Few of our articles address family history, but instead treat genetic genealogy as an area of biological research.

I identified a recent book, The Practical Guide to Genetic Family History (2nd edition, John Wiley & Sons, 2010) that would probably prove very helpful.  Our library's copy, however, is only available as an electronic book.  Such e-books are only available to currently-enrolled UNO students who must login to view them through their library accounts.  You identified yourself as "Not Affiliated," so we cannot provide you with access to the book.  However, click here to jump to the WorldCat record for the book, where you can check for a library near you.  If your local library does not have the book, ask about Interlibrary Loan service to see if they can borrow a copy for you.
