 Both and have their DNA tests on sale!

FamilyTreeDNA has all of their tests on sale until the end of the year.  If you are interested in a YDNA or MtDNA test this is the testing company to use, since they are the only ones offering these tests.  Click on the image at the left to see the prices of all their tests.  If you are wanting to order an autosomalDNA test see my advice below. has their autosomalDNA test on sale for the lowest price of the year.  The prices for this test is $69 with AncestryDNA until Midnight Monday 29 November and $89 with FamilyTreeDNA until the end of the year.

I recommend taking the autosomalDNA test while it is on sale at AncestryDNA, and  when the results come in transfer the raw test data to FamilyTreeDNA for only $39.  This gives an equivalency of testing with both companies for a total cost of $108.  The advantages of testing with both companies this way is it is more economical and your test results will be compared to additional DNA testers and therefore you will have more cousin matches.  I am available to answer any questions you have about DNA testing and assist in transferring your test data from AncestryDNA to FamilyTreeDNA.

Order now from AncestryDNA and you should have the results back in time for our 13 January 2016 GEDCOM DNA Interest Group meeting.  We will then be able to help you start finding new cousins from your matches.

Happy DNA ancestor hunting.
