WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ExploringLifesMysteries.com, a leading website that helps consumers make better lifestyle decisions, recently completed its annual review of the best DNA ancestry test companies, just in time for the holiday season. With a growing number of at-home DNA kits on the market and higher demand, providing unbiased reviews is more important than ever.
Every year the site conducts an extensive analysis of home DNA kits for genealogy. To ensure their recommendations are as current and accurate as possible for its readers, ExploringLifesMysteries.com takes into consideration new improvements, additional customer feedback and any new major players that enter the market. They also conduct quarterly re-evaluations to keep their reviews current. The site's research includes independent reviews, anonymous consumer phone calls and consumer feedback on its own website as well as third-party review sites like Yelp, Angie's List, the Better Business Bureau, Twitter and Facebook.
The 2017 first place winner, Family Tree DNA, was chosen based on a number of factors, including: the types of tests offered, DNA database size, the extent of ancestry information available with each test, price, genealogy research tools included, and more. They are the only home DNA company that offers Autosomal, Y-DNA and mtDNA testing separately, and the Y-DNA and mtDNA test results are more in-depth than other companies' analysis. In addition, Family Tree DNA gives users the ability to transfer their data from other services and store the results in its database for 25 years.
"There are several DNA tests on the market currently, and the battle for this coveted number one position is always fierce," said ExploringLifesMysteries.com's President Alex Schenker. "Family Tree DNA continues to outperform the competition, and for that reason we awarded them the top honors this year."
"As pioneers in the industry of DNA testing for genealogy, our goal is to provide customers the opportunity to discover more about their personal and family history. We thank our customers for allowing us to join them on their journey of discovery," said Family Tree DNA Founder Bennett Greenspan.
Rounding out the top three winners for best ancestry DNA test kits this year are AncestryDNA and 23andMe. To read the full reviews of the winners along with in-depth comparisons of each DNA Test, visit: https://www.exploringlifesmysteries.com/23andme-vs-ancestry-vs-ftdna-vs-geno-2-0/
