  1. Great episode! My experience with DNAC is quite similar, and completely positive.
    When I was first tested over 10 years ago, I was convinced many of my matches, especially the South Asian and East Asian matches were false positives misidentifying my native American genetics. Years of detailed genealogical research showed that DNAC’s analysis was accurate, and the paper trail matches the genes.
    As genealogists, DNAC is the only testing service we recommend to clients.

    Sometimes a new set of eyes on the problem helps, sometimes it’s a different problem-solving approach to break through a wall, or at least go around it!
