Ancestry.com is the most well-known DNA testing company and they have earned the distinction. Users have the option to connect their DNA results with their profile both to confirm ancestral connections and meet living relatives. They have the world’s largest collection of online family records available to fill out your family tree and collaborate with others. They even offer personal guidance from genealogists to assist you with research. If you find the idea of crafting your own tour daunting, they can even offer a personal guidance to plan it for you.
The biggest downside to using Ancestry.com is the cost. They offer a free trial and you do have access to some of your family tree and some records without a paid subscription. But to engage in research, you pay in tiers to have access to more records. A money saving tip is to plan ahead and dedicate a period of time to family tree research. Put other projects on the back burner and commit to making full use of their database during your subscription. Or, use the least expensive option to get to each family tree dead end, then upgrade to take each line further back in time. But watch out, it can become addictive, and you may extend your subscription indefinitely!
