Which Government are you talking about?  And why would they have DNA Genealogy records?  I could see there being government DNA records for medical reasons, but I don't know that they'd be available online anyway.  Give us some more details on what you're looking for.

The U.S. Federal Government has not in the past and does not now routinely collect DNA samples from its citizens. This would be a very costly endeavor, and everyone would be aware of it because they would have provided samples (spit, cheek swabs, etc.).  There are no U.S. Federal Government DNA genealogy records available online or available any other way.

Are you, perhaps, thinking of the National Geographic Society’s Genographic Project?  Though it's headquarters is in Washington, DC, it is a nonprofit scientific and educational institution, not a government agency.

Star, I politely disagree ma'am. The US Federal Gov. has been taking & keeping all US Military  service members DNA for quite awhile now... is the reason "The Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier" In Arlington National Cemetery has been empty for a few years now. 

 The US Fed Gov also keeps Federal Inmates / prisoners DNA, however it is a private system & not accessible to the public.

CODIS is now a part of NCIC data bank.
