If you want to ask questions or see what others have to say, these are good places to start. Company-based ones may only be open to customers (especially for message posting).

Genetealogy Newsletters [4]
Want to keep up on the latest and greatest, but like your information in periodic bursts rather than every day? Consider subscribing to one or more of these newsletters.

Genetealogy Test Results Logs [2]
These aren’t exactly databases, but they provide a means to compare your mtDNA or DNAPrint results to others.

Genetealogy Tools [9]
Are you the curious type who wants to derive every possible bit of meaning from your results? Then you’ll probably enjoy playing with one or more of these tools. All of these resources are free.

Genetealogy-Related Databases [6]
