Black Friday genetic genealogy DNA tests

The following companies are offering reduced cost autosomal DNA tests. These tests can be used to reliably find immediate family and cousins out to 4th or 5th cousins. Less reliably, they can give you ethnic ancestry results.

  • MyHeritage DNA - $49 plus free shipping with coupon code Free18 (ends Nov 23)
  • 23andMe - $69 per kit, shipping extra, or $129 for the Ancestry + Health version (ends Nov 25)
  • AncestryDNA - $49 per kit, plus shipping (ends Nov 26)
  • Family Tree DNA - $39 per DNA test, shipping extra (ends Nov 26)
  • LivingDNA through Findmypast, $59 plus shipping (ends Nov 26)
  • LivingDNA direct - $69 per kit, plus shipping (no posted end date)

I have tested at all of these companies.

I recommend the following testing strategy:
Test at AncestryDNA and 23andMe and then upload the raw data to the others. This is the lowest cost strategy and gets your results into the largest commercial genetic genealogy databases.

An additional upload is to Gedmatch. This will allow people who have tested at only one company to match other people from different companies. Gedmatch has both free and fee services. The free services get you their matching service.

There is a new company Dante Labs, doing whole genome testing for $199.00 (L169.00) for Black Friday Week. This is a 30x coverage of your whole genome and can be used for learning about medical propensities. Not really useful for genealogy.

If you already have a test result, be sure to upload to MyHeritage and Living DNA before 1 December to avoid their new fee schedule.

If you are interested in graphical representation of your relative network, Rootsfinder is another company to join before 1 December.

NOTE: I do not earn any money from your using any of these links.

From the New England Historic Genealogical Society's The Weekly Genealogist:

A journalist from French television channel TF1 is seeking French families who, as part of their genealogical research, are trying to connect with relatives whose ancestors immigrated to the United States or Canada between the 16th century and the beginning of the 20th century. If you or someone you know has been contacted by anyone in France for information about possible relatives in the U.S. or Canada, or if you know of any French families seeking information about U.S. or Canadian connections, please contact Eugénie Cohen at

Do you have a DNA match to me? Please add a family tree.

While there are different reasons to take a DNA test, one reason is to find unknown relatives. If you have taken a genetic genealogy oriented DNA test you are probably interested in determining your genealogical link to people you match. When you add a family tree at either the DNA testing company, FamilyTree DNA, MyHeritage, LivingDNA, or AncestryDNA, etc., or at a genealogical website which you link your DNA results to, GENI, WIKITREE, TribalPages, etc., please be as complete with the data for deceased individuals as you can. This means that you include locations, at least county and state in the USA, and full dates of birth, marriage, and death, as far as you know them.

Please don't list deceased persons as Private unless you don't want genealogical relations to find you. In the USA the most recent public population census is that for 1940. The 1950 census will be available in 2022. Having locations and dates allows the person looking at your family tree to make connections with people in their tree to allow identification of the most recent common ancestor/s, (MRCA). This will greatly enhance the possibility of extending your genealogy research.

My suggested minimum family tree would go back to your Great Grandparents with their spouses and children, and work forward and stop at living people on each line. Ideally going back to before the 1850 census would probably work for most people in the USA.

If your ancestry in the 1800s or 1900s was mostly in Europe or otherwise outside of the USA, testing at MyHeritage and/or AncestryDNA will probably be of most use to you. For genealogical records I also suggest using due to its worldwide coverage.

I hope this will help you find your relatives.

Do you have your original birth certificate?

This article from The Atlantic Magazine, by Christine Ro, discusses the development of birth registration and birth certificates. The birth certificate is your "first possession".

A Birth Certificate is a Person’s First Possession: Around the world, the document establishes legal, social, and economic legitimacy. But it also makes compromises.

A recent controversy over birth certificates in Arkansas demonstrates that these slips of paper are imbued with political and social meaning. In 2015, a married couple, Marisa and Terrah Pavan, had their first child, who was conceived through sperm donation. The Arkansas Department of Health, or ADH, listed only Terrah, who gave birth to their daughter, on the baby’s birth certificate. This was contrary to state law, under which the spouse of the birth mother also is automatically listed.

Slave Name Roll Project

The Slave Name Roll Project is attempting to recover the names of slaves from documents, wills, inventories, slave passes, manumission records, censuses, newspaper advertisements, etc., that individuals have discovered in their genealogical research. This is for the area that is now the United States of America.

Although I have ancestry from Colonial New England, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine, as well as New Amsterdam, New Jersey, New Sweden, and Pennsylvania, that ancestry is prior to the Revolutionary War. The bulk of my ancestry is from colonial Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina, and after the Revolutionary War, Kentucky and Tennessee. Between 1800 and 1870 my relatives had spread South to Arkansas, Missouri, Georgia, Texas and North and West to Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Colorado, California, and Oregon. However, between 1820 and 1870 my families were based in Southeastern Kentucky and Northeastern Tennessee, in Knox, Wayne, Whitley, and Pulaski counties Kentucky, and in Knox, Overton, Campbell, Scott, and Fentress counties in Tennessee.

Below I have listed my known slaveholding ancestors and relatives with the relationship, a citation to the source of the information, and the names of the enslaved where that is given. I will be adding to this page as I now make a definite effort to document this.

Spelling is as found in the document.

Locations of slave holders:

  • Alabama: Marshall county.
  • Arkansas: Ouachita county.
  • Kentucky: Knox county; Logan county; Pulaski county; Wayne county, Whitley county.
  • Maryland: Prince George's county; Talbot county.
  • Missouri: Henry county; Lafayette county; Saline county.
  • North Carolina: Ashe county.
  • Texas: Grayson county; McClennan county.
  • Virginia: Amelia county; Charlotte county; Chesterfield county; Essex county; Frederick county; Grayson county; Henrico county; Henry county; Norfolk county; Stafford County.

In 1850 there were 201 slaves in Whitley county, Kentucky. In 1860 there were 157 slaves. In 1860 the percentage of free families who owned slaves in the states below were as follows: Alabama 35%, North Carolina 28%, Texas 28%, Virginia 26%, Tennessee 25%, Kentucky 23%, Arkansas 20%, Missouri 13% and Maryland 12% (RATIO OF SLAVEHOLDERS TO FAMILIES, (1860)).

See, Slavery Laws in Olde Kentucky and David H. Streets, Slave Genealogy: A Research Guide with Case Studies
(mainly on Wayne Co., KY) and East Tennessee Roots: Slavery in East Tennessee and Hell without fire: Blacks in Tennessee before 1865.

I encourage others of pre-U.S. Civil War ancestry to do the same.

A New U.S. Budget Blueprint May Affect Genealogists [Chronicling America and other sites/programs]

From Genealogical Insider blog: This blog is written by guest blogger and Associate Editor of Family Tree Magazine, Madge Maril
The new administration’s federal budget blueprint—a sort of planning document in the budgeting process—would eliminate the National Endowment for the Humanities. If this line item manages to make it through to the final budget for fiscal year 2018, its genealogical impact might surprise you.
. . .
The NEH’s grants also support historical records digitization and access projects including the free Chronicling America newspaper search website. Chronicling America was sparked by The United States Newspaper Project, which microfilmed and cataloged 63.3 million pages of American newspapers. Chronicling America lets you search and view digitized American newspaper pages from 1789 to 1924, as well as a directory of all U.S. Newspapers published from 1690 to present.

My 64 GGGG Grand Parents

This post will be at this blog and at my genetic genealogy blog. I have been doing autosomal DNA testing of my 22 non-sex chromosomes and my 2 sex-based chromosomes at Family Tree DNA, the Family Finder test; at 23andme, the Relative Finder test, and at AncestryDNA. These tests can help you find relatives related to you from the first degree, parents, siblings, grandparents, through 5 or 6th cousins. In order to do that more easily it is a good idea to have an extensive pedigree of your direct ancestors and of their descendants. People who share a GGGG Grandparent with you are 5th cousins. So in order to alert my 5th cousins to our possible DNA match, here is a list of my known GGGG Grandparents:
  • FNU=first name unknown
  • LNU=last name unnown
  • ?=uncertain of that element
