Re: Article of Interest on DNA Testing #dna

Many of the issues raised are magnified by Full Genome Sequencing. The types of limited testing done for genealogical purposes produce only a narrow band of genetic data.

Whether the pros of genetic genealogy outweigh the cons is a personal decision. In my experience the primary psychological benefits, greaterĀ  and more accurate self-knowledge, and meaningful social connection with fellow researchers and previously unknown family, have exceeded the risks/costs enumerated in the article.
