When the family gets together for the holidays, it could be an excellent time to bring up DNA testing for genealogy. A person full of good food and warm memories may just be ready to help you make the plunge. Family Tree DNA offers a discounted price to members of a DNA Project. You can use the “join” feature on the project’s home page or email one of the administrators for more information.
Remember, although women cannot be the donors for YDNA matching, they can sponsor a male family member such as a brother or cousin. Several family members can jointly sponsor the donor, sharing the cost.
With so many different family groups in the Garrison DNA Project, you now have a greater likelihood of finding a match. My own family group has had great success with DNA testing. We were able to eliminate a lot of false connections and focus our research on true relatives.
