Privacy Policy and Disclosure


I try my absolute best to research every topic that I write about to the greatest extent possible.  I’m not a doctor or a lawyer, so please don’t take anything I say as medical or legal advice.   Additionally, I am not endorsed by any DNA testing company, although you might see advertisements for DNA testing and related services, along with other types of advertisements on this  site.   My thoughts and opinions are my own, and are not unwritten by any other person, organization, or business entity.  Finally, I encourage you to do additional research on the topics that I explore here, in order to acquire a more complete understanding of how it all relates to your own unique DNA story.

Some links on this site are affiliate links

I am an affiliate for Ancestry DNA, Family Tree DNA, Living DNA, and 23andMe, and My Heritage, so some of the links on this website are called “affiliate links”.  This means that I will receive a commission if you use the link and make a purchase from one of those companies within a certain period of time.  I always include a note next to any affiliate links, so if you just see a regular link, it means that I will not earn any commissions if you use the link.

If you want to learn more about this type of paid advertising, you might be interested in this article about paid for advertising and affiliate marketing:

Even though I am an affiliate, I have not received any DNA tests or subscriptions to any services offered by the above companies for free. I’ve paid for all of my own DNA tests and subscriptions all on my own.
