Family Tree DNA Will Keep Reduced Prices
This development has leveled the playing field for all three companies offering autosomal DNA tests to the genealogy community and allows those who prefer not to receive health results and/or wish to have their DNA sample stored for 25 years to affordably do so. I hope that this will encourage more genealogists to get themselves and their families into the Family Tree DNA Family Finder database. It benefits all of us to have genealogists with well-documented family trees participating in our groundbreaking autosomal DNA research. These price drops are really helping us to get to the critical mass that we need to get the most out of these databases. Recently, I have seen great strides in this regard in my research. Thank you to everyone who ordered tests during this trial run and to FTDNA and Illumina for making this possible.
