YOU’LL LOVE THIS KIT IF:

  • You want to use genetic genealogy in your family research
  • You want to know which genealogical DNA test is right for you
  • You want to learn how to analyze your DNA test results

Don’t worry: You don’t need a degree in molecular biology to understand genetic genealogy. You don’t even need to remember anything from that biology course you took in 10th grade. Genealogical DNA testing uses your genetic makeup to study ancient origins and recent genealogy. These tests help us explore the genetic relatedness of humans all over the world, all the while finding cousins and family members we didn’t even know we had lost. In the Genetic Genealogy Toolkit, you’ll learn about the three major types of genetic genealogy tests—mitochondrial (mtDNA), Y-DNA and autosomal DNA (atDNA)—and what these tests can accomplish for your genealogy.

WITH THIS KIT, YOU’LL LEARN:

  • the basics of genetic inheritance
  • what kinds of DNA tests are available, including: autosomal (atDNA), mitochondrial (mtDNA) and Y-chromosome (Y-DNA)
  • where to get your DNA tested
  • how to read and analyze DNA test results
  • how to find your most recent common ancestor (MRCA)
  • what the best websites are for genetic genealogy
  • And much more!

The Genetic Genealogy Toolkit includes:

Intro to DNA Crash Course
OnDemand Webinar

What can DNA tell you about your ancestors? As the number and type of available tests continue to skyrocket, that's the question more and more genealogists find themselves facing. In this hour-long webinar, Blaine Bettinger, The Genetic Genealogist, will introduce you to the world of DNA.

Using DNA to Solve Family Mysteries
OnDemand Webinar

DNA testing can connect you with living cousins, steer your research away from dead ends and lead your ancestral investigations in promising new directions. It can provide strong evidence of an ancestral connection and even suggest when—and where—the most recent common ancestor (MRCA) might’ve lived. Bottom line: Genetic testing can’t replace traditional genealogy research, but it can complement it significantly. In this hour-long webinar, Blaine Bettinger, The Genetic Genealogist, will teach you all about what DNA can—and perhaps more importantly, cannot—do.

Genetic Genealogy 101
Independent Study Course

Genetic genealogy has become an essential supplement to family research. The results of a DNA test can confirm or disprove ancestor relationships, guide you to other genealogists researching your family, help you find living relatives and smash down brick walls. However, the topic can be complicated. In Genetic Genealogy 101, learn about the different types of DNA, what they can teach you, which test is right for you, and how to read your results.

Genetic Genealogy Cheat Sheet
Digital Download

Genetic genealogy has become a family history necessity. Not because it can solve all of your brick wall problems—it can’t. Not because it acts as a quick substitute for traditional research—it doesn’t. But because it is an incredible tool when used in conjunction with your years of hard-earned genealogy research. This cheat sheet outlines (in plain English) how you can get started using genealogical DNA testing to unpuzzle your own ancestry questions with at-a-glance charts, tips and resources.

Does not include actual DNA testing supplies
