DNA Testing - know the In's and Out's of it. Genetic Genealogy, a new branch of genealogy combining genetics and traditional genealogy research, is the most accurate tool for the family historian. Family connections can be proven or disproven. DNA testing can support a paper trail which is often in question given the lack of surviving records. Its popularity grows daily with thousands testing monthly throughout the world.

Family Tree DNA's Thanksgiving Sale
November 1 to November 28 Great Savings!!! --- $20 to $270 OFF Selected Tests.
Today marks the beginning of our Thanksgiving Sale! Below you can
find pricing for the sale as well as some important changes for the
Big Y BAM
Starting today, Big Y participants will see some
changes to how they are able to download raw data for the Big Y
product. Below are further details.
For customers who purchase a Big Y-700 starting 11/01/19, the product
will not include downloadable raw data. However, customers will have
the option to purchase the “Big Y Raw Data” product after the Big Y
test has begun processing.
Customers who purchased a Big Y-700 or Big Y-500 prior to 11/01/19,
will continue to have access to their downloadable raw data. These
existing customers will see a new product added to their Order
History called “Big Y Raw Data.” This product has been added at no
charge to ensure continued access to their downloadable raw data.
The downloadable raw data is expensive for FTDNA to provide for our
customers and only a small portion of Big Y participants request this
download. Rather than continue to pass this cost along to all Big Y
participants, we have chosen to only charge those who wish to
download their BAM file for that data. This change allows us to
reduce the price of the test, which in turn will give more customers
the ability to participate in Big Y testing and building the
Y-67 is not included in this sale since Y-111 is at
the price point we would normally have Y-67. For this reason, we have
disabled the Y-67 product for new Y-DNA testers to minimize
inquiries. However, the option to upgrade to Y-67 is still available.
