It seems there is a new DNA testing site being launched every month. Besides the big 3, Ancestry, 23amdMe, and Family Tree DNA, there are money more sites. This page at ISOOG.org lists DNA testing sites. It breaks them up with Paternity testing separate since that is generally people that have something to compare with and are looking for different information, and companies no longer in business.

About the author


I found my birth family after 40 years of looking for them. I used DNA tests, software to sort DNA match results, family trees, contacting DNA matches and several website tools. We want to provide you a "one stop shop" with all your resources to help YOU find YOUR family.
