Ancestry Research

Family Genealogist

  GEDMatch.com is my genealogy topic for today. Genealogy is such a fascinating topic! I could talk about it all day long. I have always been a people person from a very young age and always wanted to learn more about people and where they came from, their cultures, why people act the way they do (nature vs. nurture) etc.

  Let me get back to my topic…. GEDMatch.com has been a helpful research tool. I love that it is FREE! It doesn’t cost a dime. GEDmatch is volunteer-run website for people who have already tested their autosomal DNA for genealogical purposes at AncestryDNA, 23andMe, Family Tree DNA, MyHeritage DNA, and some other programs.

  I myself have used AncestryDNA, 23andMe and Family Tree DNA. I have found them all very helpful in different ways. (It just depends on what you are looking for) I highly recommend that after you complete your DNA testing on whatever chosen website / program, download your RAW DNA and upload it into GEDmatch for free. It’s another way to find more matches. Not everyone uses the same DNA provider you do and GEDmatch is a great place for everyone to get together. Discover more relatives that you may not have known about.

  Not long ago, I had a 4th cousin contact me from Scotland, we were able to narrow down how we were connected and I made a new friend. It’s like putting together a puzzle one piece at a time.
