DNA test results information help please

I'm thinking of having my DNA test done

Do the results only show living relations ?

Or do the results give deceased ancestors as well with no living descendants ?

Thank you

Tracing residents of a house

A colleague has asked me to have a look at who had previously lived in her house. The house was built in the mid 1800s.

I can use either Ancestry or FMP.
