Gene Tree offered the same or similar deal several years ago. Both Rene and I applied for our mtDNA results as obtained from Sorenson. As I recall it took nearly a year to get the results. They provide only the results for HVR 1 & 2. If you can get them from Sorenson and mtDNA is of interest to you then the $19.50 price is a bargain. If you are interested if further testing, e.g. the Y chromosome, then FTDNA is the best bet for genealogical purposes. Joining a surname group will get a reduced rate on tests. They also provide the best support in the DNA testing industry.

I recently received an e-mail from Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation with an offer toreceive information re mtDNA results for $19.50 until Oct. 31st. I have telephoned their number and keep getting a message saying that number is not available in our area. I don't know what that means because it is an 866 number and we should be able to get through.My husband and I have given saliva and swab samples and have not heard anything until now. It would be nice to be able to have an updatefrom Sorenson Molecular or from someone who has dealt with them.Has anyone had success with obtaining results? Especially without paying out big bucks?

There is going to be a special event planned for next spring around April and I would love to hear from you, what topics you would like to have covered. There has been a suggestion that we have an update about DNA and also get someone to talk about some of the current genealogy technology out there such as GENI etc.Thank you so very much for your help.Sincerely,Heather Jaremko
