New on Geni: DNA Tests for Genealogy!

Posted February 8, 2013 by Amanda | 5 Comments

We’re thrilled to announce that DNA tests for genealogy are now available on Geni! Take your genealogy into the new millennium with this cutting-edge technology to enhance your family history research. And for a limited time, we’re offering you a special discount on this revolutionary technology!

Have you hit a brick wall in your genealogy research? You can break through these brick walls by identifying your direct paternal line (Y-DNA), direct maternal line (mtDNA) and relatives across all lines via autosomal DNA (Family Finder). DNA tests can help you:

  • Discover your origins and find new relatives – solve the missing pieces of your family history by uncovering your family’s origins and discover new relatives through DNA matches
  • Map your ethnic origins – do you have European, Native American, Jewish or African American ancestry you didn’t know about?
  • Prove your surname’s ancestry – find out if the males carrying your surname are actually related to each other

Geni has partnered with Family Tree DNA, a global leader in DNA tests specialized for genealogy, to bring you the highest quality DNA testing available on the market. Family Tree DNA established the world’s largest DNA database for genealogy (with more than 400,000) DNA records. You may know them from their work with National Geographic on the Genographic Project. All results are analyzed in an advanced genetic genealogy lab in Houston, Texas. You can rest easy knowing privacy is strictly enforced and the results are not shared with anyone but you.
