The Board for Certification of Genealogists in their SpringBoard Blog has stated “we must at least consider genetic genealogy as part of our reasonably exhaustive research. Not all projects require DNA testing, but some will benefit from it, and others will be difficult to pursue without it. We can’t ignore the value of genetic testing as a research tool. Let’s learn how to use it!” Toward the goal of understanding and using DNA in genealogy they say that “the single best way of learning is to test yourself and numerous family members and then explore the results using the tools at the vendor(s)’ website”. They also listed a number of resources and publication to learn more about DNA testing and how to use it in your research. You can find their article and list in their Dec. 3, 2015 Blog Post titled Genetic Genealogy Education.
