Family Tree DNA

  • FamilyTreeDNA.com sells several different types of DNA tests for genealogy
  • Project Discount: For Y-DNA tests (males only), join a FTDNA Project before ordering to save US$10 or US$20. Find a project matching your surname, or simply start your order by clicking on a reduced-priced kit from any project (eg. Australian Citizens). Learn more about FTDNA projects.
    (Note: project discounts apply during some sales, but not all).
  • Free Y-DNA tests: Some surname projects offer free Y-DNA tests to encourage males with particular surnames to test - so check the ISOGG list of free DNA tests.



Living DNA - National DNA Day Sale!

As more regions are identified, your results will be automatically updated (Irish, German, Scottish and other regions are currently being developed and your results will reflect these as they are completed). Get your DNA into the database now, ready for Living DNA's exciting new Family Networks and relative matching features (currently in Beta)!
