Family Tree DNA – Resources

Don’t Know Much About Family Tree DNA?

Neither do I!

Although I had my DNA done years ago – when it first became available – I have to admit I’m not that great at understanding all of the science. That’s why I’ve put together this DNA resource list of some of the best sites or articles about family tree DNA. (My reference is to the broad field of genetic genealogy, not specifically to the company that’s also named Family Tree DNA).

The Genetic Genealogist (This fellow really knows his stuff!)

DNALand (this is a free service with fascinating results – but you have to have done your DNA first) Once you upload your raw DNA, this service generates a genetic origin report. (See image directly below). I have seen results from five different people – and there’s always a surprise!


GPSOrigins (you can either have your family tree DNA tested and/or just get a report if you already have a DNA test) I’ve used this particular service for three people. Using the DNA it generates a lengthy report on the origins of your DNA. Image below shows a small piece of the report.
