Genetic Genealogy may be helpful for overcoming your genealogy brick wall, but how do you even start to determine which of those thousands of genetic cousins are pertinent to your particular research question? Targeted testing and collaboration to increase coverage, and filter testing can help in isolating the most important matches for your case. Once you have multiple tests available for analysis, your odds of success increase.
