About the Consultation
A post-test 60-minute consultation session is an opportunity to meet one-on-one with an NEHGS genealogist experienced in applying DNA to genealogical research. A consultation session can be used to access and review your test results; to review your current tree and identify key individuals for further study; and to identify resources and develop next steps for research that will advance your overall project.
About the Family Tree DNA Family Finder Testing Kit
With a simple cheek swab, you can discover your roots, connect the dots and unlock your family history. The signature Family Finder test focuses on autosomal DNA, which is inherited from both parents, four grandparents, eight great-grandparents, etc. This test is designed to find matches in Family Tree DNA's massive DNA database on all of your ancestral lines with the last five generations.
The Family Finder includes:
- myOrigins, a mapping tool that provides a detailed ethnic and geographic breakdown of where your ancestors came from.
- Family Matching, a new feature that enables users to sort confirmed DNA matches by maternal and paternal lines.
- Chromosome Browser, an exclusive tool for comparing matching segments of DNA (blocks) with your genetic matches.
Each kit comes with instructions on how to complete the test and how to register your unique kit online.
