Our talented team of genealogists is experienced in using and analyzing DNA test results.
Information provided through DNA testing allows our team at Legacy Tree Genealogists to use DNA information as a means of learning more about family history. DNA is a biological record of an individual’s shared ancestry with their close and distant cousins. By analyzing the types, amount, size and position of DNA segments that two or more individuals share in common, we can collaborate with genetic cousins and identify additional information regarding their shared heritage, far beyond the basic haplogroup. In many cases DNA testing helps to solve family mysteries that would be otherwise impossible to investigate due to lack of records.
Our talented team of genealogists is experienced in using and analyzing DNA test results to break through brick walls. Whether those brick walls are cases of adoption, unknown paternity, difficult-to-trace ancestors or determining an ancestor’s ethnicity, we can help to interpret genetic genealogy tests in the context of pertinent historical records.
Legacy Tree provides interpretation and analysis of DNA test results from major genealogical DNA testing companies: My Heritage DNA, Family Tree DNA, 23andMe, and AncestryDNA. Unsure whether you should take an autosomal DNA test, mitochondrial DNA test, Y-DNA test or x-chromosome DNA test to assist in your research? We can help you prepare a personalized testing plan designed to best help you answer your research questions.
Sometimes DNA tests can reveal surprises or secrets regarding an individual’s family history. They may uncover unexpected ethnicity in an individual’s background or unexpected relationships due to undocumented adoptions or illegitimacy. Our team can help research these surprise discoveries and correlate the results with your biological family history.
