If you are interested in doing a DNA test to learn about family history or your ethnicity, I recommend the following DNA testing companies.

I have done DNA tests with all of the following companies and feel confident recommending their services. I would never recommend a product that I don’t use and love myself.

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.

If you use the following link, you will be able to have a two-week free trial on Ancestry, which is great for adding records to your family tree (you don’t need a subscription to build your tree) and really getting access to all of the benefits of Ancestry DNA.  I will get a small commission if you use this link, at no extra cost to you whatsoever – it helps me support this website, and thanks 🙂 Ancestry Free Trial
