I have people of Native heritage write to me almost daily and tell me that they’d like to test their DNA but that they can’t afford the testing. Unfortunately, there are no subsidized programs for DNA testing, but this is almost as good.
Beginning today, and only until February 28th, 2013, Family Tree DNA is offering a $39 DNA test for males, for the paternal line, meaning your surname line.
In an article published today, they indicate that reduced pricing will be offered later this spring for the maternal lines, so the women (maternal lines of men and women both) aren’t left out.
Anyway, here’s a link to my blog about this at http://dna-explained.com/2013/02/21/12-marker-y-dna-test-for-39/. If you are the least bit interested, the prices have never been anyplace close to this low, so strike while the iron is hot!
