Cyber Monday Special! — free DNA test recommendation

Whether it is a special gift for a loved one or to satisfy your own curiosity, DNA testing is hot. The first three requests to Family Matters for help selecting the best test will receive a free ‘consultation’.

The majority of DNA testing, for genealogy purposes, is done by three companies: Family Tree DNA, 23&Me and Ancestry. Though ethnic composition results, as well as the cost (about $99) are similar for each — the¬†companies vary in their primary goals and the other services they offer, along with the test. Those differences should be factored into the selection of which company to use.
