Important New Developments

DNA testing has made great strides in the past year. We now have the Family Finder test from Family Tree DNA, which has been available for some time and is beginning to produce serious results for genealogists. Last evening, Family Tree DNA announced its newest test: Y-DNA to 111 markers. Previously, the most markers available for testing was 67; this new test is especially for those who have already tested all 67, and now want to confirm suspected matches.
