What are the benefits of testing the DNA of other family members?

Each of your family members carries unique pieces of DNA that can together unlock your family’s story. Testing one or both of your parents will allow you to obtain additional information about your own DNA Matches. For example, you’ll be able to find whether each match is paternal or maternal. You will also discover additional relatives through matching to 100% of each of their DNA (instead of only the 50% you have inherited). Testing siblings, cousins and other relatives is also very useful for discovering more relatives and for learning more about your own matches. Because genetic inheritance is random, your siblings may get different ethnicity results than yours, and it is fascinating and fun to compare your results.
