With the explosion of commercial DNA tests on the market to identify ethnic origins or family connections, there are many choices for autosomal, Y-DNA, or MtDNA analysis and matching. Professional Genealogist Ellen Kowitt will provide an overview on the primary tests available, identify ways to minimize costs while maximizing results, discuss where the major DNA testing companies stand on law enforcement matching for forensic samples, and the pros and cons of low-cost DNA health tests that provide personalized health reports explaining genetic risk for certain conditions.
