DNA Testing

Using DNA test kits as a family research tool is much talked about, and it is hard to know if it is likely to help one's own family research. There is always a cost involved. The Federation of Family History Societies (FFHS), with whom we are affiliated, made a serious study of DNA testing in 2018, and produced a most informative report at the end of the year. If you are wondering whether to use one of these tools it is highly recommended that you take a look at their report.

The report is titled 'Can DNA Tests Help You?'. Here is the link: Can DNA Tests Help You?
