DNA Research #DNA re: Enticing Relatives to do DNA testing #dna

Paying for their test often helps. Also, telling them what they can
learn >from the test, and what you have already learned; letting them
know that others in the family already tested. Sometimes you can
entice them with information about deep ancestry and the National
Geographic Genographic Project, or with the TV programs such as Who Do
You Think You Are and Finding Your Roots (Henry Louis Gates). Try to
make the information understandable to the relative at whatever level
they need to be able
to understand.
