What DNA test should you take? In this video I compare Ancestry DNA, Family Tree DNA, MyHeritage DNA, and 23andMe DNA. Comparing DNA companies and learning how you can transfer your DNA from one company to another can be helpful in your family history research and save you money. Also I review the basic differences between Autosomal DNA, Y-DNA, and Mitochondrial DNA. Special DNA DISCOUNTS for Genealogy TV viewers in the Show Notes below.
