FamilyTreeDNA's sizzling sale starts today!

Have you been putting off testing for your DNA genetic genealogy? Perhaps this deal, which starts today, will prompt you to get moving.

Every summer, FTDNA offers great pricing which helps people get off the fence. Last summer's special was the most successful in the history of the company.

The offer is for FTDNA group administrators to persuade people to test, grow the projects and also grow the largest industry database. The more samples in the database, the more probability you may find genetic matches.

If you've needed an impetus to start a DNA project, this may help you get it off the ground.

The special price starts today, June 5, and ends June 25. Kits must be paid for by June 30.

The prices for this short period are:
Y-DNA37 for $119 (normally $149)

Y-DNA67 for $199 (normally $239)

Y-DNA37+mtDNA for $159 (normally $238)
Now's the time to learn more about your family!

Go to FamilyTreeDNA.com, check out which projects exist for your name, geographic area or topical interest, and contact the group administrator for that group to receive an invitation.

Many projects exist, such as New Mexico, Sicily, genealogical societies and more. Enter your name in the search box at FTDNA and see which groups might be a good fit.

On a very personal note: If your Eastern European Ashkenazi family has a family story of Sephardic origin, a Sephardic surname, Mediterranean medical condition or other indicator, please click here for an invitation to the IberianAshkenaz DNA Project. Judy Simon and I would love for you to join us in discovering more about all our families.

    I went online today to look at the sale and the prices do not show as sale prices. Is it necessary to have a special code? Thank you for alerting us to this great deal.
