Please, - what is the most effective DNA testing to do?

Is there an informative DNA section on Wikitree? I would like to participate the Harvey Project which traces great grandchildren of William and Thomas Harvey 1636 Taunton, Massachusetts Bay Colony. I have multiple great grandparents in the American Revolution, The 1704 Deerfield Village Massacre, many Reformer-Puritan great grandparents who colonized Plymouth Plantation, Masachusetts Bay, and Connecticut Colonies during The Great Migration 1620-1640. Just learned that i share a Great Grandparent with Czar Nicholas II, Czarina Alix and Queen Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Woodville York and Francis FitzJohn Bernard II). Where can I locate the best DNA testing service and where do I learn what to do with it? Thank You, Christine
