Based on the industry rumble, I suspect that the other DNA testing companies have had banner years as well.

Furthermore, there is no way to know that there are matching issues unless you and another individual have transferred results to either Family Tree DNA or Ged Match, neither of which remove any matching segments.

In 2017 – DNA Is Mainstream If you’re a genealogist, you certainly know about DNA testing, and you’re behind the times if you haven’t tested.

I saw DNA in ads that year, for the first time, not related to DNA testing or health as in, “It’s in our DNA.” In 2014, it seemed like most people had heard of DNA, even if they weren’t all testing yet.
