Family Tree DNA sale
- FamilyTreeDNA has just announced their summer sale prices. This is the best price ever on the Family Finder DNA test.
yDNA tests--males only; matches will be straight up the male line: your father, your father's father, your father's father's father, etc. If your mother was a Morefield/Moorefield/Mofield, this test will not tell you anything about your MFLD ancestors.
mtDNA tests--males or females, but only females can pass mtDNA to their children; matches will be straight up the female line: your mother, your mother's mother, your mother's mother's mother, etc.
Family Finder is an autosomal DNA test that tests Chromosomes 1-22 and X-DNA (aka chromosome 23). This test can be taken by males or females and matches can be from any of your ancestors--maternal, paternal. Your name does not have to be MFLD for you to find matches with other descendants of MFLD. As long as you are a descendant of a MFLD (male or female), you can have matches with other descendants of MFLD. At the same time, some of your matches will be from your non-MFLD ancestral lines.
None of these tests will tell you exactly who your ancestors are. They will give you a list of other people who have taken the test and who share DNA with you. The Family Finder test predicts how near or distant the match is--for example, parent/child, full sibling, half-sibling, 1st-3rd cousin, 2nd-4th, 3rd-5th, 4th-remote, 5th-remote cousin.
These are all cheek swab tests--they send you two little swabs that look sort of like little toothbrushes. You scrub your cheek, put them back in the vial and send them back in the package that they provide--postage, etc. included in the price of the test.
Below are the prices of the tests that they offer. I have done the Full Sequence mtDNA, but have not found it to be very useful.
To order, go to www.ftdna.com or call 713/868-1438.
