Have you already taken the test? Use your DNA results to combine the power of DNA to search for the surnames in your tree by using the filters on your match page.
Last week I talked quickly about how I was doing more research on my maternal grandfather. I got a lot of questions on how to do this so we put together this Step-by-Step Guide to help you use the search filters to understand more of your DNA matches.
This will take you through the process of getting more from your matches and how you can search for those fathers in your tree, or learn more about certain surnames you have come across.
