DNA article and Family Finder competition in Family History Monthly

The May issue of Family History Monthly is out now and contains an article by yours truly entitled "Cousins reunited" which explains how to use the latest autosomal DNA tests to find matches with your close relatives. Family Tree DNA and 23andMe are currently the only companies which offer this test. The Family Tree DNA test is known as the Family Finder. 23andMe's Relative Finder feature is a part of its personal genomics service. There was no room to include screenshots from the tests in the article but if you are interested in learning more about these new tests you might like to read the reviews I wrote for this blog last year.  My four-part review of the 23andMe service can be found here. My Family Finder review can be found here.

There is also an exciting competition in the May issue to win a free Family Finder test, worth around £180, from Family Tree DNA. Further details of the competition can be found on the Family History Monthly website.
