What began with a basic curiosity of an adoptee about his biological origins, became a genetic exploration into history when he discovered two of his identifying y-chromosome markers created a rare, but traceable, combination which appeared in supporting data of multiple research papers. This book explores both his documented ancestry and that revealed by his y-DNA. Along the way, everything in his personal history seems to contribute in some way to the results of his research. The most significant element of that personal history is probably his learned inability to allow himself to be defeated by transient intellectual problems, or perceived handicap. In the process of joining him as he searches for his past, you will be exposed to techniques that can assist you in discovering aspect of your own genealogy which you may never have considered. You will also, as he states in the book, be introduced to "secret knowledge" contained in the Book of Genesis. As part of that knowledge, you will learn why the patriarchs were given lifespans ranging from several hundred to nearly a thousand years. You will learn of a connection between Stonehenge, Britain's earthwork hedges, and the Great Pyramids - one that does not involve, or invoke, alien astronauts. Many books have garnered the labeled "Groundbreaking", but seldom has there been one that is so current as to render the use of any conventional bibliography superfluous. Almost weekly there are new findings in the fields of DNA ancestry, archaeology and the relatively new field of astro-archaeology. Amazingly, they all seem to reinforce the connections and associations revealed here. But you might also discover things about the factual underpinnings of religion which you might not wish to know, or think about. Not the least of which is why there was time when the wisest people believed their 'Grandpa was a Deity'.

About the Author:

W. Lawrence Lipton, is currently retired and living on the Maine Coast in a house he purchased in the 1970's - when he was an internationally recognized Estate & Trust Manager for a NYC Law firm. After writing his first book, "Path of the Serpent" (1979), in which he explored his cultural migration and interaction from the perspective of a similarity of symbol and intellectual beliefs, he accepted a position as Accounting Specialist for Husson University. He then joined the University of Maine System as a Professor of Business Studies. The Gale Biography Resource Center gives Prof. Lipton twelve listings, in three areas of expertise, including authorship of three additional books, financial analysis software and two films made during the time he was a founding member of 'Filmmaker's Projection' - which included, as members, Kenneth Anger, Al Leslie, Stan Brakhage, Andy Warhol, Mike & George Kuchar, and other noteworthy artist/filmmakers from the mid-1960's. Prof. Lipton is twice widowed with six adult children; he is also profoundly dyslexic and holds degrees from New York University and Pace University.
