Easy Ways to Learn More About Your Ancestry

It is natural to wonder about where you come from and who your ancestors were. Many families did not keep extensive records of their history, leaving it to later generations to solve the mysteries of genealogy.

Fortunately, modern technology makes it easier for us to delve into the past and uncover the truth about our family origins. Today ARCpoint Labs of Lee’s Summit will share some simple tips to help you unlock the secret of your past.

Tips for Genealogy Research

DNA testing for genealogy research

Reach Out to Relatives

Another family member may have already done research on your family’s genealogy. It pays to reach out to any family member you think may have done any genealogy research in the past. They may offer you a wealth of information for free and in very little time. Even if your relatives have not conducted any research, you may discover that they are also interested in your family’s genealogy history and are willing to help you.

Websites Streamline Your Search

Over the years, several free websites have cropped up that allow users to piece together available records to help in their genealogy research. WorldGenWeb, for example, has been around since 1996 and give free access to genealogy information from around the world. Rootsweb is another website offering free genealogy records. Other sites, like Ancestry, are available for a fee. Ancestry boasts the world’s largest collection of genealogy databases and takes a lot of the leg work out of genealogy research.

DNA Testing Can Help Verify Your Family Tree

One way to help verify your research is to get DNA testing services. By analyzing genetic markers in your DNA, you can get important clues about your parentage. DNA testing can give you information about your ethnicity, help prove (or disprove) your genealogy research, or even determine if two people with the same last name are related by a common ancestor. Lab-based testing is the preferred method for producing reliable test results. DNA testing done at ARCpoint Labs of KC is the best option for reliable DNA testing with confidential results.
