Exhibitor Profile-Family Tree DNA

Booth #137

Founded in April 2000, Family Tree DNA was the first company to develop the commercial application of DNA testing for genealogical purposes. Prior to that, such testing was only available for academic and scientific research. Over a decade later, it continues to establish standards and create new milestones in the increasingly popular and rapidly growing field of genetic genealogy.

Family Tree DNA is the only company in the field to process all its tests in its own state of the art Genomics Research Center in Houston, and is the testing company for National Geographic's Genographic Project, having tested in excess of 700,000 individuals since 2000.

The largest DNA testing company, Family Tree DNA will be on hand to test you and answer all your DNA-related questions. With the most extensive genetic genealogy databases in the world, Family Tree DNA is the most important resource to connect people in the United States with their ancestors in Europe.

Genetic genealogy gives family historians a means to check their discoveries with information obtained via DNA testing. With a simple cheek swab, Family Tree DNA test can:
  • provide clues for further genealogical research
  • help determine ancestral homelands
  • reveal living relatives
  • validate existing findings
  • confirm or deny suspected connections between families 
  • prove or disprove ancestry theories
If you're new to DNA testing, a visit to Family Tree DNA booth #137 will allow you to learn about the basic concepts of this ground-breaking science.
