D N A

Many chapter members have had their DNA tested in hopes of finding more relatives. While we do not make any specific recommendations, there are several companies that do DNA testing for genealogical and medical results. But different companies give results for different purposes.

Marc McDermott (https://www.smarterhobby.com/genealogy/best-dna-test/), gives a quick comparison of the top DNA testing kits as of March 17, 2020:

  • AncestryDNA: Best DNA test for genealogy, family matches, ethnicity estimates, and gifting

  • MyHeritage: Best for international matches and advanced genetic genealogy​

  • 23andMe: Best for dedicated genetic health testing​

  • FamilyTreeDNA: Best for distant ancestry (beyond 6-8 generations), YDNA and mtDNA tests​
