Hi folks,

I am starting to hear a lot about DNA testing to help us family history / genealogists. We really do need help! :)
I am interested, as I know many other members are too, but would like some feedback.

Modern DNA testing can now be used to corroborate or expand your family tree. A number of UK and US based companies now offer Y-chromosome tests that can prove whether people are closely related or not and even give a strong indication of how recently their common ancestor lived.
Question?:
  • Has anybody gone down this route?
  • Would you be wary of giving your DNA away to some company?
  • Any other comments, greatfully received
Many thanks,
Dave
