Many people are tracing their genealogy by using DNA. Just how does this work? Basically when your research runs cold and you can find nothing on paper anymore, a DNA test can be done to determine if someone is a relative or not, by simply doing a brush of the inside of the cheek. These DNA tests can also be used at times to see if a person is part of a larger group of people and for people who are performing surname family tree reconstruction projects.
Many people are choosing DNA projects as a way to find out if an ancestor is truly that, an ancestor. Most of these DNA tests were developed for the amateur genealogists who are serious about their research and for professional genealogists who are researching family lines. The cost varies, but typically it costs between $120 and 3$00 for one DNA test.
