When you’ve reached a dead end with historical records, DNA tests through popular services such as, 23andMe, FamilyTreeDNA, and MyHeritage can help to shed light on family relationships.


Not all tests are the same, though. The results can be very overwhelming and hard to understand. Here are a few ways that I can help you:

  • I’ll explain the different types of tests (e.g. autosomal vs. Y-DNA) and give you my recommendation for the best test for your situation.
  • I’ll save you money in the long run by guiding you to the right test from the outset.
  • I’ll analyze your results and help explain everything from ethnicity breakdowns to how you’re related to certain matches.
  • I also can use your DNA matches to break through walls in your family tree.

Thinking about taking a DNA test? Get in touch and let me know what you’re hoping to learn. I’ll recommend the right test for you!
