SKU: 3877 Category:
Genealogical Publishing Company


DNA analysis is the new frontier in genealogical research. Combined with traditional research methods it is the gold standard in genealogy. Four types of DNA tests are commonly used in genetic testing: (1) Y-DNA; (2) MT-DNA; (3) AT-DNA; and (4) X-Line DNA. The successful use of these tests requires interpretation, but in conjunction with documentary research, indisputable genealogical evidence can easily be established. One of the purposes of this QuickSheet is to show how to cite sources in compiling a genealogy using DNA analysis. As Ms. Mills demonstrates, the standards for citation, evidence analysis, and proof–when using DNA tests for historical purposes–are the same as those for sound historical and genealogical research. This QuickSheet demonstrates how to report test results, analyses, and instructional matter in ways that support those standards.
