I'm a writer of several non-fiction books (including 'The Year of Living Biblically' and 'Drop Dead Healthy.' My current book, It's All Relative: Adventures Up and Down the World's Family Tree is about genealogy and tracing my roots. And for the finale of the book, I threw one of the largest family reunions in history.
Since we're all cousins, all seven billion members of the human family were welcome. Those who had a confirmed link to me received a special bracelet and were part of the record-breaking family photo.
It was exciting to use collaborative genealogy and WikiTree as part of this project. I had so many great volunteers working on my tree -- so thank you for that.
For more information on me and the start my project, here is a New York Times article I wrote when I first started this journey... 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
