This is a wonderful time of year for DNA testing because both Ancestry.com DNA testing and Family Tree DNA have great holiday sales. The Ancestry.com DNA testing sale does not start until midnight EST Thanksgiving day and lasts only until the 28th. See the banner below. What’s more, if you have already tested DNA, you can upload to DNA.land and perhaps receive a full genome test for Christmas (see the read more).
In addition to the great bargain prices, Family Tree DNA has special coupons for existing users which are new every Monday. You have to log in to see yours. Click the green box marked Holiday Reward (like the image to the left here) located just above your matches on your home page there.
And let’s not forget that MyHeritage has also entered the DNA testing arena with a holiday sale price of $79. My understanding is that the Family Tree DNA lab is doing their testing so your results should be transferable to Family Tree DNA for more matching sometime in the future. Note that the National Geographic deep ancestry project is transferable already.
Also we have been promised another Christmas present, any day now, Family Tree DNA will be able to take uploads of DNA data from the new chips at ancestry and 23andme for only $39.
So give the gift of DNA testing this year … Happy Holidays all!
and for the information on the DNA.land holiday gifting …
Here is the video from the DNA.land Facebook page
and here is what they say there
DNA.Land Gives Back! #dnalandgivesback
We are excited to announce that we will be giving away Whole-Genome sequencing services to some of our users!
Our goal is to reach 40,000 users by Christmas Day. If we can meet that goal as a community, we will be giving two of our users a fully sequenced genome as a holiday gift.
But, it wouldn’t be in true DNA.Land style if we didn’t shoot for the moon!
We have set a number of exciting stretch goals.
If we reach 45,000 users by Christmas Day, we will give five of our users a fully sequenced genome as a holiday gift.
