Are you confused by what DNA testing can offer the family history researcher? I know that I have been!

Do you wonder how DNA test results can help you to break down your brick walls in your ancestor research? Or perhaps you are not sure what or who to believe?

 

I read an excellent article this week that I really think is worth drawing attention to. If you don’t already belong to Peter Calver’s LostCousins then you may not have seen this week’s LostCousins Newsletter

The article explains why we can’t afford to ignore DNA evidence in doing our research; what test you should consider taking; who should do the test and an independent opinion on which company to test with.

You will also learn what the DNA test can’t tell you; what you will find using DNA and how it could help you break down your brick walls.

I can’t recommend this piece more highly as it well written and easy to understand. This is not the first article that Peter Calver has written on this subject, so if you want some answers to the questions that many of us have about DNA and how it can be used in family history research then why not join his LostCousins membership? Standard membership (which includes the newsletter), is FREE.

If you join the LostCousins website and share your ancestors it can help you to find living relatives and so help you to discover more about your family tree. LostCousins say on their website that it ‘is all about bringing people together, not just people who share an interest in family history, but people with a shared interest in the same families, people who share the same DNA.’
