Tim Agazio at Genealogy Reviews Online presents the first post in a series that will review the genetic genealogy testing process at DNAAncestry. In this first installment, Tim discusses the website, the tests offered, and the ease of ordering.
I will actually be doing a similar review in the near future, as I’ve ordered a test from DNAAncestry for my maternal grandfather’s Y-chromosome. Since he unfortunately passed away in 1983, it will be a great opportunity to talk about finding other alternatives, finding other people with the same surname, and joining surname projects – in addition to other questions often asked about genetic genealogy. If there is anything you’d like me to highlight in this process, please leave a comment and I will do my best to address it!
So, if you’re interested in getting a first-hand look at the process, stay tuned to The Genetic Genealogist, and to Tim at Genealogy Reviews Online. Since Tim and I are both members of The Genealogists, one easy way to ensure you never miss a post is to subscribe to The Genealogists’ feed!
