The link will get you to a lengthy story from the July 27, 2017 Washington Post about how your DNA testing for genealogy can provide you with more mysteries and life-changing possibilities than you ever wanted to discover.
DNA testing for genealogy is the hot thing. Many of our genealogy programs participants have submitted their DNA for testing, often initially being tested with autosomal DNA analysis. I have submitted my DNA for such testing and have recently had a wonderful connection to an unknown cousin who is an outstanding genealogical researcher. Results like this are the really positive side of DNA testing for genealogy.
Check out the link below to get a different perspective on DNA testing for genealogy. The results are not always what you expect which can be challenging and life changing. After reading the article I am thankful that my DNA results were completely boring and matched to the assumptions I have carried throughout my whole life.
I have personally heard the stories of at least 2 individuals whose test results showed that they were not who they thought they were.
You have to be prepared to receive results that will turn your world upside down!
