Tuesday's Tip - Now What? from DNAeXplained

You've read about the FDA's
order/letter to 23andMe by now,
I'm sure if you are at all interested
in DNA testing.
Here's a link to Roberta Estes' blog
explaining what you might want to
do now with your results and information:
Happy Hunting,

Motivation Monday - You Put off DNA Testing!

Okay, are you one of those who have been
debating on whether DNA testing would help
in your quest to break brick walls, etc. in your
genealogy research?  If you think you might
want to test at 23andMe, read this post by
"FDA Orders 23andMe to Discontinue Testing".
Why test, you would probably ask me or others?
Andrew Jackson Festervan
For me, testing was to meet cousins and learn
about ancestors I knew nothing about.
Before I tested, I did not know
many of my Grandmother Neoma
Kolb Cauble's mother's family.
I match in atDNA with members of
Andrew Jack Festervan's family.
Andrew Jack was my Grandmother's
great-uncle, a brother to her Grandmother
Martha Ann Festervan/Festervand Martin Beasley.
Though I have yet to meet them in person, in 2014
my plan is to join them in Louisiana, if possible. 
Get motivated and test - if you want to!
Happy Hunting!
