Autosomal DNA For Genealogists
This is your get-started guide for DNA testing for family history! Here, you’ll find answers about the most popular kind of DNA test (autosomal), the kind sold by 23andMe, AncestryDNA, Family Tree DNA (their Family Finder Test), Living DNA and MyHeritage.
Sometimes families live and grow up and work in the same area, but if they don’t, autosomalDNA may be a way to find those who share some DNA but have other pieces and bits you need to find. This may lead to those missing links or have some leads to link relatives with some similarities to some people you have already found and you now need to prove or disprove the relationship.
The YDNA guide had great information that helped me understand more about the test and what information might be gained from the results. I also sent a copy of it to a direct male descendant cousin whom I have asked to take a YDNA test. It was very helpful in his making the decision about taking the test.
Great quick reference.
Clear and understandable, many thanks
It's Mike Scharr AGAIN. I'm sorry I'm so blonde but I bought the download able guides you suggested and later told you I never got them. You then sent me the links to do so. Now I can't find that email. Please send again.
