- AJ Jacobs Junior's Profile
- Family Tree & Genealogy Tools
Hello all! I'm a writer of several non-fiction books (including 'The Year of Living Biblically' and 'Drop Dead Healthy.' My next book is about genealogy and tracing my roots. And for the finale of the book, I plan to throw the largest family reunion in history. You're invited! All seven billion members of the human family are welcome. Those who have a confirmed link to me will get a special bracelet and be part of the record-breaking family photo. I'm excited to use collaborative genealogy and Wikitree as part of this project. I've already gotten some great volunteers working on my tree -- so thank you for that.
For more information on me and my project, here is a New York Times article I wrote about it recently... http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/01/opinion/sunday/are-you-my-cousin.html
And here's a link to my website page about it
Look forward to collaborating with everyone.
