If you think you know your family tree, think again. It’s about to get a whole lot bigger, if author A.J. Jacobs has anything to say about it.

Jacobs, the bestselling author of “The Year of Living Biblically,” in which he attempted to follow the literal words of the Bible for a year, and “Drop Dead Healthy,” where he tried out every diet plan and workout, has a new mission: to throw the world’s biggest family reunion next summer in New York.
