National DNA Day Sales

National DNA Day, April 25th is a celebration of the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the Double Helix in 1953.  It is a day that offers students, teachers and the public to learn about DNA, to celebrate the latest advances, and to learn how they impact our lives.

You can see some events happening at: https://www.genome.gov/10506367/national-dna-day/

As a result, every year we see the genetic genealogy companies place their tests on sale so all of us can have the opportunity to learn about DNA and how we are all related.

Family Tree DNA takes top priority as their autosomal sale (Family Finder) is the lowest and they have more types of tests on sale.

Family Tree DNA has tests on sale from now until 28 Apr at 11:59 pm, probably Central Time.
Family Finder is $49 (save $30)
Y-DNA tests are all on sale:
               Y-37 is $139 (was $169)
               Y-67 is $209 (was $269)
               Y-111 is $289 (was $359)
               Big Y is $649 (was $799)
mtDNA tests:
               mtDNA Full Sequence $149 (was $199)

Remember, for any sale no other discount codes can be used.

  • AncestryDNA has their atDNA on sale for $59

Do test...you could be my cousin!

MyHeritage's DNA Quest - pro bono project helping adoptees - is now global!

MyHeritage gave away 10,000 DNA tests to adoptees and family members trying to find their biological relatives in the US, but they have some left in their 15,000 goal!

The deadline for submission is April 30th, so act now!

As a result, they are going global with the free test which means anyone can still get a free autosomal test if they act quickly.  See:  www.dnaquest.org for more information

More information about the DNA Quest initiative incluidng a detailed FAQ and an application form are available on the project website at:  https://www.dnaquest.org/


So many adoptees wish to find their roots and many who put a child up for adoption wish to find   their child.  Many siblings and cousins have embraced their new relative.

Let's help the world get connected!

Many DNA successes to all!
