DNA testing

by Star Lakavage

 

Guys, my husband does a LOT of genealogy work, has done so for years. He is a big fan of Ancestry.com and of their DNA testing. He recommends it to many people asking similar questions. His ancestry is Scots/Scots-Irish/German. From his experience, no DNA testing will tell you more than Eastern European when it comes to those countries-they will link you to others researching a similar resultant group. My husband is really into the Scottish heritage and helps at many festivals in our area-he has been extremely helpful to those starting out. He has very mixed feelings about using other recently advertised DNA testing. Claims are a little too specific in their ads. You might be of Nordic ancestry but that doesn't pinpoint you to a specific country and you might share some traits but remember our varied American backgrounds. Same with Eastern Europeans. That helps you to narrow down the search but you've got to put in your own muscle after that. And also, remember, they do point you in the direction of others searching similar lines. Hope this helps! Star
