It is almost two years since I took my first test, hoping that it might help me find out about my Grandfather. I wanted to share the knowledge and techniques that I’ve gained over the past two years and make DNA testing something that helps you in your family history research – rather than something that makes you want to throw your laptop across the room in frustration!
Despite my love of computers, I still prefer learning by reading printed words on a piece of paper. I decided that as well as general blog posts, I would create information sheets in a format that could either be read on-screen or downloaded/printed and digested at your leisure. Hopefully, over time, they will build into a useful reference library.
Today’s information sheet is for those of you who are thinking about taking a DNA test, especially as many of the testing companies have discounted kits for sale at the moment. How can testing help? How much will it cost? Where can I buy a test? Which test should I buy? What else should I consider?
