DNA Test Sales & Discounts

When there are sales or discount voucher codes available for the purchase of DNA tests for genealogy, I share them here. Current DNA test prices are at an all time low, so it is a great time to start your DNA journey!

If you are unfamiliar with the different DNA tests for genealogy and you would like to know what you are ordering, compare the features and prices of the major DNA testing companies.




Living DNA

  • Living DNA is highly recommended if you have British heritage... their 3-in-1 test includes a detailed breakdown of your biogeographical ancestry (into 80 worldwide regions including 21 British regions!), as well as your motherline (mtDNA) and fatherline (Y-DNA, males only) haplogroups.  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!
