These are the e-books that I have written about Gedmatch and genetic genealogy, and they are only available for purchase on this site. They have been created specifically for my beginning readers – those of you who are just getting started on your DNA/genealogy journey.

If you are interested in doing a DNA test to learn about family history or your ethnicity, I recommend using Ancestry DNA. I will receive a small commission at no extra cost to you if you purchase your DNA kit by clicking on the image below.
Family Tree Research
Are you going to start working on building your family tree? Ancestry.com allows you to create a family tree for free, so you don’t necessarily need to have a subscription. There are, however, some benefits to having a subscription (at least the free trial):
- Take advantage of “tree hints”; basically, Ancestry notifies you automatically when they find a record that matches someone in your tree. You can build your tree very quickly this way
- Information can automatically be added to your tree from other public family trees, or records that Ancestry has on the site. You can always add information in yourself manually if you can find it somewhere else, but having a subscription does make it much faster and simplified.
I really recommend doing the free trial, since you can always cancel if it isn’t a good fit for you. You can get the free trial by clicking this link. I do receive a small commission if you end up purchasing at the end of your trial period, of course at no extra cost to you : Start Your Free Family Tree! 14 Day Free Trial
