Where should I test?  

 

Everywhere you can. The two companies that you actually buy a kit and test at are Ancestry and 23andme.

Here is a list of DNA Companies and Third Party Platforms:

I DNA tested, NOW WHAT?


1. Download your DNA Raw Data from the providers' site to your computer
2.  Upload the Raw Data to the 3rd party companies that will accept it.

FTDNA
MyHeritage
Genesis GedMatch (replaces the old Gedmatch)

Most of the companies are only able to transfer Ancestry DNA versions 1 and 2.

If for any reason you have a problem uploading your Ancestry DNA, here is a tool called a Patch to help convert the file so it can be accepted to upload Ancestry DNA to FTDNA
