With the Holiday
season approaching, family gatherings are a wonderful opportunity to
interview relatives, as well as to share with family members the
exciting discoveries from DNA testing and recruit participants. A
DNA test is a gift of discovery, which will continue to provide
discoveries in the future.
You may also want to consider raising donations to provide test kits
for participants who are critical to your research.
Family gatherings are an opportunity to recruit the relative that
you need to take a DNA test. A festive setting combined with a
simple, non-technical explanation of the test will go a long way to
overcome fears and concerns.
