Holiday Sales for FTDNA DNA Testing


It is that time of year when DNA services are offering Holiday Season sales. FTDNA has extended its Thanksgiving Sale. Here is a great chance to learn more about your family history and to also join the Sproul DNA Project - at a good price!


Information on the FTDNA (Sproul Project is hosted through FTDNA) can be found at the site below. For male members of the the 'Sproul' family and any of the associated spelling it is important to include Y chromosome DNA testing in addition to Family Finder autosomal DNA testing. For the Y testing you really need a Y 37 test or higher to glean useful insights. The highest Y test you can afford will yield the most information.


By the way - this is also a good time to upgrade your Y test is you have already done a Y 37 or Y 67 test with FTDNA.




Better still - here are some discount codes that provide you even more savings -


MERRY10 - 10% off orders over $100 and MERRY5 - 5% off orders under $100
