Start with an autosomal DNA (atDNA) test.
Before you buy, make sure to getting advice for which test best fits your situation.
It is important to test in as many places as possible (fish in all the ponds). You don’t know where there key matches you need will have tested.
My Heritage generously offers free tests to adoptees in their DNA Quest program. DNAAdoption is on the DNA Quest board of advisors.
If you can afford at least one test, the typical and usually most cost-effective approach is apply to DNA Quest and then test at ancestryDNA and transfer to the other companies.
More about the tests can be found here.
