Upfront with NGS has just kicked off a four part series on DNA testing and its genealogical uses. Although the first DNA tests were done in 1999, DNA testing for genealogy was still in its early stages it didn’t the consumer market place until a few years ago. And, according to the National Genealogic Society this is all thanks to Bennett Greenspan who is now President of Family Tree DNA.
In the beginning there were more questions than answers. Now we are able to know which pieces came from which ancestor and where we came from both individually and from which subgroups?
This new series from NGS will be a worthwhile experience for all who are interested. To get started click on DNA Testing for Genealogy 101 – What Can It Do For You?? Part 1
