Late April 2017 Update


Next week is a busy week in the genealogy world!
DNA Day sales, NGS Conference registration, Earth Day for genealogists | The Occasional Genealogist

DNA Day is April 25th. Why do you care? SALES! If you've put off buying a DNA test, this is THE time to do it. Choose whichever testing company you want, they probably have a sale.

I love FamilyTreeDNA because of their tools, prices, and you can get all three types of tests (at, mt, and Y). Here are their main three sale prices, there are additional items on sale, mainly related to Y-DNA tests.

Family Finder (atDNA---autosomal, this is the type of test from AncestryDNA and other genealogy DNA companies, for male and female testees)
normally $79 sale $59

mtDNA full sequence (mother's line, for male and female testees)
normally $199 sale $149

Y-DNA, 37 markers (father's line, for male testees, only; more marker tests are also on sale)
normally $169 sale $129

You've got one week left to pre-register for the upcoming NGS Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina, May 10-13, 2017!

This applies to registration for on-site events. If you can't join us in Raleigh, there are also live-streaming and recorded options so you can still learn from some of the amazing lectures being offered.

Check out this post for more details about recorded options, learn more about the conference in general, here.

Before the other events, Saturday is Earth Day. Last year I wrote a series of posts just for the occasion. You can check them out with the following links.
