Traces the author's three-year investigation into what constitutes family, describing how, after receiving an e-mail from a stranger who claimed to be a distant cousin, he embarked on an effort to build the biggest family tree in history.

This book has been released this year. I don’t think I ever posted this. But I’ve seen it around so here it is finally posted.

RNS: You talk with tons of celebrities in this book, like Daniel Radcliffe and George H.W. Bush. What was your favorite conversation?

Jacobs: I loved the interview with Daniel Radcliffe. First of all, he is an example of a child actor who turned out OK! So right there, that’s a lovely testament to his character. But also it’s so interesting just hearing the sacrifices that all of our ancestors made. His grandmother married a South African man who was just terrible, and he tried to have her committed to an asylum. She had to escape in the middle of the night with her child, Daniel’s mother.
