Genealogy Resources: DNA as an Aid to Genealogical Research

Local and online resources for genealogy researchers

Why DNA?

As you build your family tree, you may find yourself tracing the wrong branch of a family - or the wrong individual - by making an incorrect assumption. DNA testing for genealogy helps to eliminate some of those errors by confirming your link to a family that others have already researched correctly. A word of caution, however, is needed. It is still possible for the research of another to be flawed, and you should take great care to be certain that you are on the right track.
