DNA Testing for Genealogy:

DNA Testing has now become affordable to assist in the mapping of Family Trees.
There are three different types of DNA testing (Autosomal, YDNA, and Mitochondria DNA. The last two are best for distant Ancestor family line 5-12 generations back, whereas the Autosomal is best for 1-6 generations (cousins).
There are several companies providing Autosomal DNA testing.
In general I recommend that people use the AncestryDNA test as the results can be downloaded for deeper analysis. The data can also be uploaded to FTDNA, and for a small fee (US$39) you can use their matching and features. MyHeritage now allow DNA transfers from Ancestry, and other testing companies, but you may require a full subscription to view results.

The information entered into Ancestry Trees is mostly secure, but subject to accidents, and damage due to data entry errors. It is important to keep local desktop copies of any Tree from Ancestry.
