About the Author

Randy Lindsay is a native of Arizona. He lives in Mesa with his wife, five of his nine children, a dog, a cat, and a hyperactive imagination. His wife calls him the "Story Man" because he sees everything as material for a story. Lindsay has researched his family history for fourteen years, incorporating more than 5,000 family members in his family tree and has helped many others in their ancestral quests.


"Lindsay is a gifted author, and he also writes carefully about unresolved issues in his mother's story. (An author's note explains her situation.) Recommended for fans of family memoirs, and especially for readers with an interest in genealogy."-- "Library Journal"
"Lindsay's memoir is truly a work of our times in the way it shows how internet ancestry sites and crowd-sourced research come together with readily accessible DNA kits to help us know who we are and where we come from. Lindsay focuses not on explaining the how or why of this, but rather on exploring identity and family, nature versus nurture, and the meaning of love and belonging. His writing style ranges from chatty to reportorial, while his openness in sharing his doubts and uncertainties, as he navigates his way through old and new relationships in Arizona and New Jersey makes for compelling reading. While it would have been nice to have more answers, it is possible to admire the author's choice to explore themes of paternal love and engagement instead of treating other lives as puzzles to be solved."-- "Booklist"
