Score Big Holiday Sales on DNA Tests – Thrifty Thursday

The holidays are a perfect time to accumulate new genealogy information.  Family parties and visiting relatives are a good way to touch base with loved ones and gather the resources you need for your research.  While you’re at it, why not pass out a few DNA tests along the way?

There are some big holiday sales on DNA tests right now, from basic ethnic percentages to full Y and X chromosome testing.  Here are a few of the specials available online in December!

FamilyTreeDNA: https://www.familytreedna.com/

The super low summer sale prices on FamilyTreeDNA have been further reduced for the holiday season.  Their Family Finder (ethnic percentages + matches) is on sale at a super pricepoint of $59 + shipping.  This is a great test to give as a present and can help uncover a few surprises in your background.  The best part, you can share these tests on social media platforms for some great family discussion.


Price Comparisons:  Y-67 and Family Finder tests  – $278.  Y-67 without the Family Finder test – $229.
