S03 E23: Genetic Genealogy: Separating Facts from Myths About DNA Tests

Genetic genealogists like Roberta Estes and Derek Eastman have created excellent websites where they share professional genetic genealogy information. Their work, and the work of other genetic genealogists who publish online, is invaluable. Yet, myths about DNA testing persist. Separating facts from myths about DNA tests is necessary.

If you spend any amount of time surfing through Facebook Genealogy & Genetic Genealogy communities, you will see common questions about DNA testing and DNA estimates.

In this episode, we talked about DNA testing myths and truths to further your knowledge of what is achievable – and what isn’t – when you submit a DNA sample to the big DNA testing companies. And we covered ways that you can actually use ethnicity estimates as a guide to identify further areas in your research.
