Having your Y-DNA and mitochondrial DNA tested is a first step towards using a new toolkit in your genealogical research. Itâ€™s something new, just as using the Internet was twelve to fifteen years ago. Donâ€™t be overwhelmed.
Dr. Blaine Bettinger, also known as the â€œGenetic Genealogist,â€ is there to help you learn how to use your test results and apply them to your research. His blog helps translate a scientific topic into understandable terminology for â€œthe rest of us.â€ He also has produced a 28-page book PDF file titled â€œI Have the Results of My Genetic Genealogy Test, Now What?â€ that helps those of us who are just beginning our genetic quest understand it all. The file is available at the Genetic Genealogist blog. His explanation is one of the best and most understandable for the layman. You will want to add this to your reading list if you are exploring your genetic genealogical connections.
