Those of you who have attended Jamboree are undoubtedly familiar with Family Tree DNA. Bennett Greenspan and his staff have been involved with Jamboree for several years, and they'll be back with us in 2010.
I just received the following notice regarding special pricing on FTDA tests through the end of the year. Feel free to pass it along.
Last year, my brother and I decided to not exchange gifts. I bought a DNA testing kit, gave it to him, and asked for just a little of his spit. I didn't know if he'd go along with it, but he got quite the chuckle and agreed to be tested.
To get the special pricing, click on the FamilyTreeDNA icon on the main page of the SCGS website at www.scgsgenealogy.com
