DNA Testing

Genetic Genealogy - using DNA to find biological relatives

DNA testing for genealogy is fast becoming an essential tool in an exhaustive search of a family's history. DNA testing is now affordable, accurate and an ideal way to solve mysteries and brick-walls in traditional research.  Thousands of Australians are now testing and having success matching with cousins in Australia, elsewhere around the world, and in the hometowns of our early settlers and immigrants.



Genealogy - the fun, popular, and ideal hobby for online!

Online genealogy

Researching your family history online is fun, very popular and often quite addictive! There are so many wonderful resources available online, both free and paid services, but the sheer volume and complexities of these can be very overwhelming for a beginner, and mistakes are very easily made.  

Avoid common mistakes by learning proper research techniques from the beginning - don't end up researching the wrong family!

Coaching to get you started can make a huge difference and affect the success of your ongoing research.  Learn how to link subtle clues from different sources to help you get to the next step.  Don't worry if you are not computer literate, or not very proficient on the internet, as I can teach you that too - as long as you have the desire to learn.

No need to travel the world to find your ancestors (although it would be nice) - start at home and enjoy the journey!
