Taken a DNA test?

DNA tests are becoming evermore popular and useful as a tool for genealogists, but the results can seem bewildering too. Help is at hand, however! In our brand new series, family historian Karen Evans will be giving you really practical advice to help you make sense of your DNA test results for your family history research

Now what?
