World Families, a US-based company that manages DNA Surname Projects.

Family Tree DNA, a US-based company that began doing genealogy-related DNA testing in 2000.

The US Ancestry company offers DNA testing on a limited basis.

23 and me offers DNA testing which provides information with respect to your risk factors for various illnesses (as of May 2011, it tests for about 100 different diseases), as well as physical characteristics such as eye color. It also tests for sections of autosomal DNA shared with other people, which indicates a strong possibility that you and those other persons had a common ancestor. By connecting with those individuals and sharing family tree information, you can discover just how far back your are related, and who that common ancestor might be.
