DNA

Genealogy and genetics have become interconnected.  It is important to know what is in your genes.  Your DNA can provide insight into your heritage that you cannot get from genealogy research alone. You may discover that your ancestry includes portions of the world that you never would have guessed!  Some DNA tests can reveal how much of your DNA came from Neanderthal ancestors.

DNA testing can also point out genes that indicate that you are at a higher risk of developing certain illnesses, disorders, and conditions.  This type of information is vital for those who are trying to put together a medical family tree. Scientists look at DNA in order to learn more about the connection between genes and health.  They need data from people who have the genes they wish to study.  The results of your DNA test can do more than teach you about where you came from – it can also be used to discover potential treatment options for diseases that do not have a cure.
