I could create my own beginner’s guide to genetic genealogy, but I think Kelly Wheaton’s Beginner’s Guide to Genetic Genealogy is a great resource. It’s up to 16 lessons.
If you have taken a DNA test and are not sure what to do next, her guide is a good starting point.
I will be writing an article on the different DNA testing companies, but want to wait and see how a few things turn out.
If you are considering a DNA test, Kelly’s warning cannot be stressed enough. Don’t take a test if you can’t handle what you may find out. She gives some startling odds in this link.
If you have questions about DNA testing in general, I am happy to help or refer you to a source that may be better able to answer your question. I am familiar with AncestryDNA, DNA-me.co (no longer in business), FTDNA (Family Tree DNA), Geno 2.0 (sometimes called Nat Geo, short for National Geographic), 23andMe, Full Genomes, and several other companies.
