DNA testing made affordable
As more and more people research their family history, there comes a point when it becomes very difficult to go any further with your family records and the trail go cold. However, there is now a possibility of going much further and the use of genetics has helped Family Historians create new lines of research. The Genealogist has started offering these DNA tests to the public to help trace family lines with prices starting at £64.95 with other packages available.
“I see this as another tool that not just genealogists but anybody interested in family history could use to discover a lot more information,” says Mark Bayley, Head of the Online Division at TheGenealogist.co.uk “When you research a line, there’s only so far back you can go when the paper trail ends. DNA can bridge that gap and get you past those brick walls. Many people are interested in genealogy and don’t have time to research the full family history themselves. Now they can learn more about their family than they ever thought was possible. We have access to the largest DNA Database and it can really help expand your family history knowledge.”
DNA Testing from TheGenealogist can allow beginners to the world of genealogy to make big strides in developing their family history in much quicker time and discover key leads, also allowing you to connect with other genealogists and family members you never knew existed.
Many thousands of users have purchased DNA testing and the demand is increasing as people decide to take their family history research that step further. It’s a quick , painless process involving a swab in the cheek that can give you a wealth of information on your past!
It is a fascinating way to really retrace your roots.
