Just a very quick note to my readers to let you know that Family Tree DNA has lowered the price of their unlock for autosomal transfers from other companies to just $10 through January 28th.
Transferring your DNA from the following vendors to Family Tree DNA is free, as is matching.
- 23andMe (V3 and V4 only at 23andMe meaning kits tested before August 2017)
If you want access to the more advanced tools at Family Tree DNA, you need to unlock those tools which normally costs $19. The $10 price is a great value and it’s a one time cost – not a subscription.
Tools you’ll receive access to with the unlock include:
- Chromosome Browser
- myOrigins (ethnicity estimates)
Click here and use code ATULJAN18 during checkout to reduce the unlock price to $10!
If you thought about or started the transfer process before but never finished, now is a great time to upload and save.
Having difficulty or need some help? Here you go!!!
