FamilyTreeDNA has another sale on for a few more days. If you are keen to get a DNA test, it is a good week. The male DNA tests are especially good value and if you want to upgrade to the ultimate Y-700 test, it would be worthwhile doing it this week.

Y-37 (males only) is $129 down from $169.

Y-67 (males only) is $199 down from $268 (we recommend this test for males with Oxfordshire ancestry on their surname line).

MtDNA full sequence (for pure female line ancestry) $149 down from $199.

FamilyFinder/autosomal test (for all lines back to 5th/6th cousins) $49 down from $79.

Upgrades from various Y-DNA tests already taken to Y-700 – prices vary from $399 to $217 (normally $599).

For anyone who has Oxfordshire ancestry on the appropriate line(s) being tested, then to join the Oxfordshire project and buy a test at the same time go to

www.familytreedna.com/groups/oxfordshire

For all other people new to DNA testing go to www.familytreedna.com 

For those who have already tested with FTDNA and want to add another test, sign on to your account and select the ‘upgrade & add-ons’ button near the top right of your dashboard screen. (It makes sure your new test is added under the same ID). In general you will not have to supply a new sample, just pay for the test upgrade which will use your existing sample.

If you are thinking about a DNA test, then buy one from FamilyTreeDNA at www.familytreedna.com in August as there is a sale on most items. For males testing their surname line, a Y-37 test is down from $169 to $149. For males and females the autosomal (FamilyFinder) test is down from $79 to $59 and other tests are also on sale. If you already have a test with the company, then upgrades are cheaper in the sale too. It is well worth buying now. We recommend males with Y-37 upgrade to Y-67 or Y-111.
