About DNA

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is now becoming a huge help and tool for family historians and genealogists alike to break through those brick walls and solve mysteries that have been hidden for years.

While we don’t claim to offer DNA services or be experts in genetics, we do have experience in the use of DNA to aid those who think that it might assist them in their endeavours to find that elusive ancestor.

The whole process can seem overwhelming to the beginner and we can get you started on advice from which company to use, what test to take, what DNA tools are out there for you to use and where to go for specific advice if we can’t help you. We can help you learn how a match might be related to you, how many generations back they would go and whether it is feasible for you to continue with a particular search.

Remember, DNA is a tool, used to make a hypothesis, much like any other tool that a genealogist uses. And while DNA in itself can be used to prove a connection with another person you should always try to have a good paper trail to back up your hypothesis.

So there you have it, want to dip your toes into the exciting world of DNA? Give us a call and we can get you started.
