Hello Catherine, You may need to be more specific about what you are hoping to achieve and who you would like to test.

I would at least tag your question with some of the surnames you are looking to connect with. Also developed your tree where you see potential to connect. For example, I took an Ancestry test and it gave me a 4 th cousin that had a tree in ancestry but not developed enough where I could see how we connected. I played with that generation and found the surname I wanted and eventually connected ourselves.

I would love to take one that is legitimate and can get actual data from for the tree.

There are pros and cons with any DNA test.  

You might want to review them against each other

To "work" on WikitTree people who match you will need to have tested.  WikiTree works with GedMatch.  They do not do testing but take data from testing companies and compare it across a larger database.

And remember that WikiTree does not "match" your DNA with others.   It only populates profiles that are connected to you with your DNA, and gives you "potential" matches.

I am a Harder descendant who has taken a DNA test and know of a number of others in my line who have tested.
