Good idea, I'll hold off for a couple of weeks.

Hadn't really been interested in DNA tests up to recently but with Christmas coming up and no other ideas for presents for ourselves we may just give it a go. Roll on Thanksgiving, 23rd November!

I don't think Ancestry allows transfers from any other sites.

I transferred the opposite way (Ancestry to MyHeritage) for someone but the matches are pathetic. Something like 7 in total and the top one is estimated to be "1st to 5th cousin". That particular match is on other sites and he shares a surname with the paternal grandmother, so I was able to pin him down as a third cousin with a small bit of work.

Click here. The discount was automatic, no code apparently required.

Don't forget to unclick the automatic renewal or at least cancel it before month ends.

Thanks Montgo! You've just cost me €3.74 and my wife may not see me for the next few weeks but into the deep I go!

It's only a bargain if you'll use it! Really tempted by the irishnewsarchives offer but I don't use it all the time and €10 for a day is very reasonable when I do need it.

I upgraded a Y DNA test that has been essentially useless from 12 to 37 markers. There's more I could do there but didn't want to commit lots of money to it. In general, I find autosomal more worth while.

I've subscribed, (thanks Montgo, it did not work without your link). It's less than the price of a pint, so any little bit of use justifies it. FWIW my FTDNA 37 marker Y-DNA did nothing for my research, nor did the autosomal from Ancestry.
