DNA Test storing results for future

I have only one elderly living brother. I want to choose a DNA company that would store his DNA and would retest it 10 or more years from now when DNA testing is more geographically detailed and accurate. Do you have a recommendation? Many Thanks!

Hi Judith, Great question! FamilyTreeDNA, Ancestry.com and 23andMe all save your DNA sample. FamilyTreeDNA says they’ll save your sample for at least 25 years, while the other two companies state that they save your sample “indefinitely.” There’s no indication at this point that any of these companies will go out of business any time soon, so you’re probably safe going with any. Ancestry.com is the most popular on the market. Good luck with your future searches!
