Hi, there are several DNA testing companies and I’m not an expert by any means. If it was me, I’d take a home test with Ancestry.com. Then I’d upload the results (all very simple and instructions are included on the site) to GedMatch. I’d look at the results of the DNA test and start plotting out a family tree within Ancestry or a similar tree building site with what you know and what you can work out based on the dna results. Be cautious, some people don’t want to be discovered or share information so it can be time consuming and frustrating. Join a local Genealogy group too either in person or online as they will be able to help you. Best of luck.

Most individuals I know that have done DNA testing have received colorful pie charts and all kinds of geological graphs in the mail once their heritage was determined. why did I just receive a skimpy little e-mail from my heritage?  it was and is quite disappointing

as long as you identify the person in question you can get the date of death, if entered,

If you are able to identify the person only by its name and if the date of death is provided and public, you can find it.
