I am also wondering if Donald Vischulis is still on this forum, he was a big help to me earlier when I first started looking for info on my family.

My wife did the dna test from Ancestry and I'm also planning on doing it, thinking we'll get a membership and will check out the family trees. Thanks.

Monte, You can get a lot of genealogical information, similar to Ancestry.com(censuses, draft cards, marriages, births, deaths, etc), at Familysearch.org. It's a free site. Carl J

Monte, I did the Ancestry DNA test. I wasn't very specific. My Lithuanian ancestry was identified as "Eastern European". I don't have any recommendation. Perhaps someone on this site may have one. Carl J

Guys, my husband does a LOT of genealogy work, has done so for years. He is a big fan of Ancestry.com and of their DNA testing. He recommends it to many people asking similar questions. His ancestry is Scots/Scots-Irish/German. From his experience, no DNA testing will tell you more than Eastern European when it comes to those countries-they will link you to others researching a similar resultant group. My husband is really into the Scottish heritage and helps at many festivals in our area-he has been extremely helpful to those starting out. He has very mixed feelings about using other recently advertised DNA testing. Claims are a little too specific in their ads. You might be of Nordic ancestry but that doesn't pinpoint you to a specific country and you might share some traits but remember our varied American backgrounds. Same with Eastern Europeans. That helps you to narrow down the search but you've got to put in your own muscle after that. And also, remember, they do point you in the direction of others searching similar lines. Hope this helps! Star
