Are you interested in taking a DNA test? Have you done so but looking for more information? My latest video discusses the various DNA test options one has for genealogy research and details Y-DNA tests. Or visit my DNA playlist for other videos that may help (Click HERE).
RootsTech is always a great place to renew memberships or get new products due to the discounts offered. Being virtual, not as many amazing deals this year, but here are my takes:
Go to RootsTech Expo Hall for more information and other deals not listed here! https://www.familysearch.org/rootstech/expohall/
*Notes added are my opinions – I am not “sponsored” by anyone.
