DNA Day, April 25th, isn’t a national holiday, at least I don’t think it is – but in the genetic genealogy community, DNA Day is anticipated with as much fervor as the holiday sales.
For weeks now, people on social media have been commenting that they are waiting for DNA Day Sales.
Wait no more – the sales are here…and we have a “lowest price” winner!!!
The lowest price for an autosomal DNA test is…..drum roll….
Family Tree DNA’s Family Finder test is $49 through April 28th
Wow, just wow.
Other companies are having sales too:

Not sure who can test for what? The short article, 4 Kinds of DNA for Genetic Genealogy explains.
If you’re wondering about the new “Y 500,” it’s a FREE UPGRADE that was released just yesterday for everyone that has purchased a Big Y test. This is pretty amazing for a company that doesn’t charge you a subscription, for anything. Purchased Y DNA tests provide customers with up to 111 markers, but the Y 500 guarantees you an additional 389 STR values that you will be able to compare with other testers soon. Way to go Family Tree DNA!
Stay tuned. I’ll be covering the new Y 500 in an article in just a couple days!
