Where to start in DNA testing #dna

Kathy Lorber

I am new to DNA testing and would like to start in a logical and cost
effective way. Is it best to test myself(female) or my mother(who is 90)?
Would I start with an autosomal DNA test or do the mtDNA test? Should I
have my brother do the Y-DNA or the autosomal test(my father is deceased)?
Also, on my husband's side should I start with my husband or my son, and
should they do autosomal or Y-DNA testing?

Is it best to begin with FTDNA or start with Ancestry autosomal testing? I
realize the best answer may be all of the above, but I am trying to get a
start in DNA research in a logical manner. If anyone has developed a step
approach to DNA testing I would like to hear about it. Any suggestions
would be most appreciated.
