DNA test specials from Family Tree DNA:
First, let me wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
As we have a few days left until the end of the year, I wanted to remind
you about the end-of the-year promotion, which this year is encompassing
the widest rage of tests, from new kits to upgrades. This is a great
opportunity to bring in new members and to refine your own test results.
Here are the details of the promotion:
Current Group Price
SuperDNA (Y-DNA67 and
Family Finder + mtPlus
Family Finder + FMS
Family Finder+ Y-DNA37
Comprehensive (FF + FMS
Orders must be placed and paid for by December 31, 2011 to receive this
IMPORTANT: We encourage you to spread the word starting now as the
natural tendency is for people to order at the last minute. This
promotion will run through the end of December and we will not be
extending it beyond December 31, 2011.

Kevin, thanks for the info. We all need to consider both new tests and
First, if there is anyone out there who has not yet tested, I will pay for
one new test. We need data from new members. Just email Kevin and me and we
can get it done.
Second, realize that there are now Y-111 STR marker tests available. I have
tested to the 111 level and have done the Walk the Y, but we do not expect
everyone to do this. I have, with Kevin's help, upgraded all of my little
family group to 67 markers. 12 marker tests are not enough. Upgrade as you
Third, test mtDNA and Family Finder if you wish. Personally I'm into male
Y-DNA and not interested in mtDNA and Family Finder.
Fourth, don't overtest. No need to test brothers and known cousins. My most
significant match is with a descendant of my ggg-gf born 1791 whose brother
was born 1797. So select your test candidates carefully.
Finally, consider haplogroup and SNP testing. Are you a Viking or a Celt?
