The purpose of this paper is to introduce and analyze the progress, and potential, genealogical research has and possibly will accomplish. We will cover the popularity that genealogical research has gained in recent years and why it has gained so much traction. This would include the influence of the internet and the niche market which it was able to fulfill. This paper will also study the advances in genealogical research which include all of the modern benefits of DNA testing, and the influence it is having globally. The last thing we will do is analyze the criticisms of genetic testing in the market today. The results will reveal that with careful supervision the industry of genetic research can make a great contribution to mankind. Also that genetic research has an immensely large market for genealogical research with industries far into the millions, making it extremely difficult to halt or limit their progress, which many countries are quickly realizing.
