Family Tree DNA Introduces "Family Finder" Test

Genetic genealogy company Family Tree DNA is launching a new DNA test called Family Finder that’ll let you connect with family members across all ancestral lines.

While Y-DNA tests match men with a specific paternal line and mitochondrial DNA tests finds potential relatives along only the maternal line, Family Finder—an autosomal DNA test—can look for close relationships along all ancestral lines.

But rather than simply helping you confirm potential relationships with specific individuals, Family Finder is intended to match you with new relatives. Test results include a list of matching people in Family Tree DNA’s databases.

Men and women can take the test and match the results to male and female cousins from any of their family lines in the past five generations.

Family Finder is available now to current Family Tree DNA clients for $249, and will be offered to everyone in mid-March. Family Tree DNA CEO Bennett Greenspan called the new test the company’s “most exciting genetic genealogy breakthrough” since launching its Y-DNA test.
