Discount time again

A great time to explore suspected relationships  and to validate your paper trails.
FamilytreeDNA have announced their annual sale.

All of the projects listed above right would welcome your participation if you are a direct male line for the surnames concerned, or can find someone who is for the family you want to explore.
We prefer Y-DNA67 tests to explore closeness of relationships, but for initial exploration of matches, Y-DNA37 is a good starting point.

Should you feel left out by this exclusivity, there are other tests that may be of relevance for what you are trying to prove.
Exploring/looking for relations in the closer generations, no more than 6, preferably fewer?
Try Family Finder, for males or females, using autosomal dna inherited, randomly, from all of your direct ancestors - but you wont know which bit came from which one without more tests from known relations.
mtDNA for exploring direct maternal lines, either sex can test, but the slow mutation rates make this of more limited usefulness for determining how closely matches match.

To order any of the new kits, go to your project of choice either by finding the ones above in the DNASurnames index, or by searching within the FamilyTree DNA database.

If aleady a participant, log in and order any of the upgrades shown below.
