DNA Research

DNA Research is becoming an increasingly important part of genealogy. As the techniques used in DNA analysis develop the greater the benefit to genealogists it becomes.

Several types of DNA tests are available, each capable of revealing different aspects of your ancestry. In some cases you may find that other people with the same surname have registered a one-name study with a particular DNA testing company. In these cases you may find ready-made links into other branches of your family tree.

We recommend that you explore and learn all you can about DNA testing before adding this branch of research into your portfolio, and as always, the links are provided subject to our terms and conditions.

Many researchers are publishing details of their own DNA Projects on their websites. Links to these can be found further down this page.
