Testing Your DNA for Family History and Ethnicity Results

ID : 83927   
« back to classes page
There are now five companies in the USA and one in Europe offering DNA testing to the general public. Some of these tests are extensively advertised. All six of these companies are legitimate and provide what they promise. There are also now three types of basic DNA tests offered ( atDNA, mtDNA and Y-DNA – the last two are listed with options) and one advanced Y-DNA test called BigY. Each of the three basic DNA tests  have benefits and limitations. Each of the six testing companies have advantages and disadvantages.  Your speaker has taken all of these tests with all of these companies.  This class will explore which test and which company are best for you to use to achieve your goals.  There will be a take-home handout.
