Genetic Genealogy Websites
Unless your DNA results lead to answers quickly, you might find yourself needing more help to use your DNA results.
Genetic genealogy websites can be helpful in answering questions such as:
How is DNA passed down (see our DNA tab), what is recombination, what do long or short segments indicate, why is the X chromosome useful or not useful? What do I do with these DNA matches?
Some websites focus on technical issues, others try to create a sense of community. Some offer webinars, workshops, videos or discussion areas.
Most of them are trying to help make the science easier to understand.
While some sites are free to use, many require donations or subscriptions.
As always, check the site’s credentials before uploading any personal information.
Our recommended list is below.
