Genetic genealogy has become an important, critical, and interesting tool in our family research. We, as researchers can learn new things about our ancestors through DNA testing. For example, you might learn about ethnicity estimates which you did not know. Or, you may be able to identify an ancestor and break down a tough brick wall. You also may identify unexpected results – including misattributed parentage. DNA can also solve adoption questions. Titles could be My DNA and Me or My DNA Says... or It's in My DNA
