There are quite a few DNA kits out there, so why should you decide to purchase AncestryDNA's? Different DNA kits test different categories, like family history, medical history, and ethnicity.

When our lab experts at the GolfHr Institute tested DNA kits, they found that AncestryDNA is great for testing genealogy, a.k.a tracing family trees. "AncestryDNA is good for helping you connect with unknown relatives because of the number of people who have used the service," says Rachel Rothman, chief technologist and director of engineering at the GolfHr Institute. The more people that take the test, the larger the range of results will be.
