As the Group Administrator for the Swanay/Swaney DNA Surname Project, I am pleased to tell you about the "Y-DNA Upgrade Sale" currently being offered by FamilyTree DNA. I received the following email yesterday from FTDNA Vice President Max Blankfield:
Over the last several years, due to the unmatched growth of our database, numerous people have confirmed and found new connections with others of their surname, and adoptees and descendants of adoptees have even found their biological surname lines. Are there any other individuals among these adoptees looking for their connection to this direct paternal line?If you have already tested with Family Tree DNA, you may order this special offer by logging into your personal page and clicking on the special offers link on the left hand navigation bar. Offers that are relevant to you will be displayed in the drop-down menu. Don't miss this great opportunity to get more "bang for your buck," DNA-wise!
To help answer that question, Family Tree DNA is offering, for a limited time, a discount on all Y-DNA upgrades! We will notify each participant in the database who qualifies for this offer by e-mail, and will provide them a direct link they may use to take advantage of the upgrade. There will be no need for participants to contact us directly in order to receive the reduced price; our prices have been adjusted in the system accordingly.
The offer will last from May 14th through May 23nd. On average, the reduced prices will be 25% lower than the standard upgrade price. This is a great opportunity to increase the data in your project. Are there members who have been hesitant to upgrade due to price? This discount is an opportunity for them to upgrade and help both their group and potential lost relatives at the same time. When encouraging members to upgrade, you may wish to note that genetic matches allow people to find their biological lines, and not necessarily a specific individual.
This promotion is for upgrades only and does not apply to new kit orders. It's our way to thank past customers for their patronage.
As always, we appreciate your continued support.
