News from the DNA Industry and a RootsTech Reminder
Over the past several weeks there’s been a shift in the world of DNA testing. 23andMe laid off 100 people in late January and earlier this month Ancestry announced it would be laying off 6% of it’s workforce.

Both companies cited a decline in the market for direct-to-consumer DNA tests and have announced they will be refocusing on other aspects of their business (including the growing health-related market).

The main question for genealogists, however, is the same it's always been: "How can I use DNA to learn more about my family history?" The articles below, written by experts, will help get you started.

We here at Family Tree are looking ahead to RootsTech later this month to see what other news about the future of genetic genealogy will be released. We'll be on the floor of the Expo Hall, so stop by booth 1404 and say hi if you'll be there! Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for more RootsTech coverage in the coming weeks.
