The blog Creative Gene breaks down just how much it'll cost you to start compiling your genealogical history. Spurred by last night's 60 Minutes segment, "Reconstructing the Family Tree," the blogger says she'd be willing to shell out $1000, but that only includes about seven genetic tests and a few books on the subject.
