What’s in your Genes? Deciphering DNA Testing

Do the DNA Testing commercials have you curious?  Are you considering taking a DNA test but wonder who to test with?  Clueless about spitting or swabbing? Join Genealogist Michael Stills for an introduction to DNA testing.  We will unravel the four types of DNA and their appropriate tests, discuss the pros and cons of the major testing companies, discover who owns your DNA once you test and answer many of your questions before you buy your first DNA kit.


Michael is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, the Rhode Island Genealogical Society and is past President of the Mountain Genealogists Society in Colorado. Now living in Bristol, Rhode Island to better access New England's genealogical resources, he is on a never-ending quest to answer his daughter s family history question from 2003.
