Two Common Genetic Genealogy Questions Answered!
For the answers to these two questions, I am turning to Devon and Andy Lee – the Family History Fanatics! I just love their YouTube channel and their videos on understanding DNA. Short and easily understandable videos really do help take the overwhelm out of genealogy research!
Question #1 – “Which DNA Testing Company Should I Use?”
It’s an important question to answer so you can achieve your genealogy research goals and make the most our of your genealogy research dollars.
Listen to Andy Lee’s answer:
Question #2 – “I tested with 3 different DNA test companies. Why are my DNA test results different with each one? Are they wrong?”
This is such a great question! It’s one I’ve wondered about, too. I think you will understand much better after listening to Andy Lee’s explanation.
