The Thanksgiving Sale is here! FTDNA is having a sale on all their tests, including upgrades. Ends Nov 22. Family Finder is at $49. The Y37 is also at its cheapest price ever! The Y111 costs less than the regular price of a new Y67. A few members have already ordered additional testing. If anyone has questions, as always feel free to ask. I suspect there will be a Christmas sale, but no idea if it will be better than this one.

¡Hola primos! I uploaded my Family Finder and mtDNA results to GEDCOM weeks ago without receiving my number. What am I doing wrong?

October 11 @ 4:09pm
My name is Mary De Berry, I am trying to find info about my biological father. The only thing I know about him is he would have been in the military in Germany in 1955. My twin and I were born in October 1955. My mother is deceased. Her name at the time was Ursula Machenheimer. She was born and raised in Germany. We have in in Florida since 1968. Any info at all is greatly appreciated.

Have you taken a dna test? If so, I would upload the raw dna file to GEDmatch.com and they will assign you a GEDmatch ID, then we can see if you are related to any of us. For instance my GEDmatch ID # is A820630. I come here and try to match my ID to the ID's I find on this page. Best of luck! :-)

Hello everyone, my name is Alexis. I am managing my moms dna. Her name is Lauren Bell. I am just searching for matches and some way to find the connection between the matches she currently has. I've been trying to build a tree off her matches and haven't had much luck. Her closest matches are all 3rd cousin and beyond. Gedmatch is M717992.

Hello Cousins! I am curious if purchasing the SNPs will increase my chances of furthering my ancestral research. I mean these tests can really get expensive. I already paid for the Family Finder, Y-DNA 111, and mtFull Sequence. I sometimes get emails from FTDNA telling me they've found a relative. When I check on them, their surnames are not familiar. On another note, what makes it tougher is that there is no information that I've been able to come across on my maternal grandmother's parents. The story is that my grandmother was raised by an aunt. We don't know the aunt's name. And, my grandmother's father and two brothers went back across the border to Mexico shortly after the incorporation of Texas. I've been reading up on the history of Texas and can understand why my great-grandfather and his sons would want to escape during the reconstruction. Another issue is the ancestry of my paternal grandmother. Before her death, my grandmother told my oldest uncle (deceased) that she was Apache. But, the family kept this a secret because of the way the Natives were treated. I think there might have been a surname change somewhere in the lineage. So, I've got a great task ahead of me. Thanks, in advance for any replies!

Ordering SNP Packs or the Big Y, will not help in your case Juan. They would be useful if you had say a lot of Y111 matches and some were believed to be false positives. SNP testing can also be helpful to map out the human tree of life, but only if you have other distant cousins who also have taken these tests. Also, don't bother taking a SNP pack if you intend on ever taking the Big Y. The BigY500 will find the SNPs from those packs plus thousands more.

Just wondering did you create a free account to GEDmatch.com yet? Then if you have not already, download your raw dna file and upload it into GEDmatch.com. Gedmatch will assign you an ID #. Then you can tell us your id # and we can try and see if we are a match. For instance, my ID# is A820630. There are tools on Gedmatch to not only do "One to One" matches but several other apps, such as the "One to Many" where you will find about 2,000 cousins matching to about the 7.x generation level. Let us know when you get your GEDmatch ID, it's free. Best of luck, we will help you as much as we can.

Yeah! That is great!!! I am going to start studying chromosome snp's to see where we are related by comparing known cousins's snp's - it's a long term project, so don't hold your breath LOL

FTDNA is having a special offer for Y37 and FMS. Ends Nov 10. It is not listed on their main page and they only messaged MyHeritage customers, but you don't have to be one of those customers to get this deal. This is the cheapest we have seen the Y37 go for. https://www.familytreedna.com/specialoffer
