    The presentation slot will be on the new, free, FamilyTreeDNA Discover tool for exploring the branches of the tree of mankind, along with where you might fit, along with the (in)famous you may be related to.
    With the growth of DNA testing, many of these new branches are well within genealogical timeframes these days,
