Genetic Genealogy

We receive around 50% of our DNA from each of our parent, whom receive 50% from theirs. By using a DNA test, it’s possible to connect with individuals doing the same research. This will help you tremendously. A DNA is not a magic bullet, research and some leg work are still necessary. It can also be very useful for an adopted person.
