DNA testing for genealogical research is becoming a larger item as a resource in the genealogy research tool bag. That being the case, I thought it would be appropriate for me to add a new DNA category in my “Favorite Links” page on the blog you will find at the top of the home page.
I added two links within that category. One link will get you to the Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) website. This company has been very popular in the growing field of DNA for genealogy. I have heard much good about the company, the testing and the site.
I also added a link to a website for which the site author is known as the “DNA Adviser”. His name is Richard Hill. He has authored a book titled Finding Family: My Search for Roots and the Secrets in My DNA . I am in the process of adding that book to our circulating collection after I became aware of it via reading a review of it that was in the July/August 2013 issue of Family Chronicle. I have looked at the website and it looks very good. It contains great amounts of information on just about anything you might want to know about DNA and how to use it with your genealogical research.
The author is adopted. He accidentally discovered that information which has led him on his quest to find his biological parents. DNA was one process he utilized in his quest to uncover his birth father and mother.
If you have been wondering more about the science, the techniques and yes, the confusion, about DNA testing, then “meander” on off to the two new links I added to my “Favorite Links” page of the blog under the new category of “DNA”. If you don’t want to “meander”, just click on the link that follows in this post that will get you there.
“To DNA or not to DNA …That is the question?”
You decide, but first check out the new links!
