2013 the year of DNA

Sweden's closest neighbors; Norway and Finland, both are a couple of years ahead when it comes to the use of DNA for genealogy.
But, 2012 was a rather good year also for Sweden and if we will follow the same pattern that they have done, we will have a huge increase in genealogical DNA testing in 2013.

I have seen estimates that indicates that over 10000 Swedes will order a genealogical DNA test in 2013 and probably 25000 more in 2014.

I hope this will be true! We need more Swedes to join the genealogical evolution and match up with our other neighbors and of course USA.

As the only listed genetic consultant here in Sweden, I will surely do my very best to spread the word and let people know all the benefits with genealogical DNA-testing.

One of my goals for 2013 will be to hold some free seminars about genetic genealogy here in my hometown Trosa. Our population here in Trosa is about 11000 and my goal is that I will influence at least 100 persons here to take a genealogical DNA-test during 2013.
