The advancements in DNA research and technology are happening so fast, it’s almost impossible to keep up with them. It appears that AncestryDNA has developed a new breakthrough technology that allows the definitive identification of our ancestors back to the 1700s using just DNA testing – no genealogy research required.
Unfortunately, the basic DNA testing they have always offered is not available, much less this new advancement. I would implore Ancestry.com to find a way to make this available in countries that provide a substantial portion of their subscription income, such as Canada and the UK.
The following is the news release issued by Ancestry.com today.
