Family Tree DNA is running a short sale on mitochondrial DNA testing. These discounts don’t come up often, so now is a good time to take advantage of this if you’re so inclined. Remember, mitochondrial DNA is a direct line path up your matrilineal line – your mother – her mother – her mother – as far back as you can go genealogically…and further. Your haplogroup will tell you a great deal about where your ancestor was and originated before the advent of a traceable surname. I talked about my mitochondrial family discoveries in “Jasmine’s Journey of Discovery.”
A full sequence mitochondrial DNA test is available for 20% off the $199 retail, which makes it $159.20.
People who have already tested to the HVR1 or HVR2 level and want to upgrade will receive an offer for 25% off upgrades, taking the $139 retail upgrade price to only $104.25. The full sequence test is the only way to obtain your full haplogroup designation.
The sale ends at 11:59 pm August 31st. (Central time, of course.) These are the lowest prices FTDNA has had on mtDNA in quite some time – so if this is something you’ve been thinking about – now’s the time.
