DNA testing is becoming cheaper

The financial cost of taking your first steps into the world of genetic genealogy to further genealogical research has reduced significantly in the last few months.  Family Tree DNA have reduced their basic 12 marker Y-DNA and mtDNAPlus test to approximately £38.

The paternal 12 marker test and the maternal mtDNA Plus are ideally priced to be used to preserve a DNA sample from an elderly relative for future research.  These tests can easily be upgraded at a later date using the same sample.  Additional products can also be ordered such as the autosomal DNA test called Family Finder which compares DNA inherited from all 16 of your great great-grandparents.

The mtDNA Full Sequence test has been reduced in price and now £134.  Exact matches found through the mtDNA Full Sequence test have a 50% chance of matching within 5 generations or a 90% chance within 16 generations. 

The Family Finder test which is for close cousin matching back to your 16 great great-grandparents  is now only £74.

Check the new pricing structure at Your Scottish Ancestry the official Scottish representative for Family Tree DNA.
