A friend of mine is interested in doing some amateur genaology using DNA
typing to establish relationships with people sharing his surname in the
old country. Let's say you have a budget of <$1000 and you don't want
any radioactive or toxic waste disposal issues. Any suggestions?

I am thinking RAPD analysis from cheek scrapings using a second hand PCR
machine.
