Family connection

I posted here before and got some help but if it's not suitable for here maybe a mod could move it.
Short version of the story.
2 women and 1 man siblings with the same mother and father and the parents are both dead.
Woman comes along and claims to be half sister with the same father as the other 3.
What tests and with who can help prove or disprove the relationship.
Blood tests or DNA tests and how do you find a reputable company to carry out the tests
Any ideas appreciated
Thanks

Any of the autosomal tests would show a half sibling relationship. All three could test, or just one and her. Family Tree DNA had a 49 dollar offer recently. Don't know if it is still on.

If there were to be any possible legal or inheritance repercussions, I would look for a more specific test than one meant for family history purposes. They will be substantially more expensive.

Yes - agree with Spurious. Do Family Tree DNA or Ancestry or 23&Me or My Heritage and all will definitely show a half-sibling relationship.

Every close member of my family tested has been accurate.

Thanks for the information folks. There are no inheritance issues or legal issues just a woman wanting to know if she has any family and who her father was.

FTDNA still has their $49 Family Finder offer for a couple more days.
