DNA Testing

How can a DNA test help with my genealogy?

Scots in Spirit helps facilitate your DNA testing by offering links to Family Tree DNA, a major tester and service provider.

There are three basic tests to investigate different aspects of your family line.

These DNA tests can help you find family, break through "brick walls" and trace your lineage through time, with a comprehensive testing suite that can take you on this journey.

  • Family Tree DNA has the most comprehensive ancestry database in the world
  • They can put you in contact with your closest genetic matches
  • Share stories and work together to connect the dots on your family tree

You can book these tests through the page links below. Connecting to the Family Tree DNA site will give you access to full information about their services.

  • Y-DNA Tests

  • MT-DNA Tests
    Traces the direct maternal line and migration route
  • Family Finder Test
    This test focuses on the DNA inherited from both parents, and is designed to find living relatives within the last five generations.
