Thank you for your inquiry. 

Due to the popularity of my book, Finding Family the volume of inquiries I receive has increased dramatically.

I will do my best to respond to you personally; but it may take me awhile.

To help you in the meantime, here is my current list of recommended DNA tests. Follow each link to learn more directly from the lab offering the test.

I do NOT sell DNA tests. You order them from these labs...

Family Tree DNA




Living DNA

Men interested in their direct paternal line should also take the Y-DNA test at Family Tree DNA The 37-marker test is appropriate most of the time. They also offer mitochondrial DNA for anyone that follows the direct maternal line.
