Genetic genealogy has quickly become an essential part of the family history toolkit, but it’s important to understand what it can – and can’t – do. When coupled with traditional genealogical experience, DNA testing can be used to help provide proof of ancestral connections, connect you with living cousins and guide your research toward promising possibilities and away from dead ends. It is not a silver bullet – its value is limited without the concurrent use of traditional family research methods to evaluate and document a paper trail that can be substantiated by DNA evidence.
