Need advice on getting genealogical DNA test in the USA

  1. Aug 29, 2010 #1
    I was wondering what are some good institutions in the USA (preferably in Connecticut) that give reliable genealogical DNA tests.

    I am interested in seeing what my heritage is composed of. I'd also like to see if I have Ashkenazic heritage.

    I am not aware of specific places in Connecticut where this is done.
    However there are online companies that will do this for you. We don't endorse
    specific ones. However you can find a listing of such companies that do
    DNA testing here.

    Also if you watch some of the Finding Your Roots episodes
    on PBS TV or on their website. They mention places where they have
    their DNA samples tested.
