DNA tests are the hot topic for family historians these days. The area can be bewildering and often it can be difficult to decipher the results. What’s a centimorgan? How do you triangulate results? How should you approach contacts? Are ethnicity results nonsense (hint: mostly!)? Should you use Gedmatch? I can answer all these questions and more.
I can help you to understand your autosomal DNA results. Having taken tests with both Ancestry and Family Tree DNA myself, I also manage a number of other people’s kits and have successfully solved a couple of longstanding genealogical brick walls with the help of DNA tests. See my article in Irish Roots.
If you are considering taking a DNA test, I can also advise the best route for what you hope to achieve.
