Also there's a "buy 2, get 1 free" offer on Ancestry DNA kits. You need to use the US site and a US address. But if prepared to do that, it's a nice deal.

The kits are $59 each plus shipping ($9.95 for first kit, $4.95 each for additional kits). The total for three kits will be $137.85 which works out at $46.95 per kit including shipping.

Well I'm definitely going to try and get him to do an autosomal DNA test ,but y DNA doesn't really change that much in two generations does it? Especially if I'm getting a more accurate y111 test no?
I'm afraid I'll scare him with all these tests as he had a bit of a health scare recently even though I've been talking about family history with him for nearly a year now.

I understand that FTDNA can use the same test kit in order to test for both ATDNA & YDNA (even if you were not going to buy both tests at same time). Somebody else may confirm.

LivingDNA have a 3 for 1 offer for €79 plus postage. The 3 for one refers to a normal dna test the maternal line and the paternal line.

For someone who normally uses ancestry are you best doing an ancestry test since you cant import one or do most export their ancestry results anyhow to elsewhere?

That's a really good offer from Living DNA but their database is still tiny & they're still not providing matches. I gave them my DNA at BTOP 2017. Logged in recently and it said "matches coming in 2019".

Most serious DNA testers do ancestry and then export results to other databases. Note My Heritage will be charging for uploads from other sites from 1st December onwards.

ETA: I just logged in again Living DNA and there's absolutely nothing in there. Admittedly, I gave them my DNA for free, but no matches, no data. What's the point in testing with them?

Before I pay for it, why does it ask on FTDNA to select the tester's gender for the Family Finder kit? If it's autosomal it shouldn't matter, should it? Or am I missing something? My intention is to test my mother's cousin, but if he isn't keen on it, then I will ask his daughter.
