Genealogists! Get 10% Off on DNA Testing

  Thinking about having your DNA tested? Now's the time! Ancestry is offering 10% off on their DNA tests in honor of St. Patrick's Day.

The offer is good until March 19th. Just use this link for your 10% off DNA.

What can a DNA test do? You can learn about your ethnic origins, connect with others who match your DNA, and compare notes on your shared ancestors.

Read some of my personal stories about what my husband and I have learned from DNA tests.

We learned, for example, that the family rumours were true and that hubs' grandfather's father was not the man married to his mother. Nope, the rumour that Great-Grandma had been messing around with the hired man named Cooper turned out to be true! DNA connected my husband and his mother with first cousins through the Cooper family.

We also were able to verify our paper research showing my Native American heritage, and my husband's black ancestry.  more secret recently came to light, and this was something no one had any inkling of. Not a whisper, not a rumour, nothing - so it was a real bombshell.

We had a first cousin match to one of my sons. A first cousin we'd never heard of. No one in the family knew of this person. I'm sure my genealogist readers can figure out pretty quickly that a first cousin match meant that a sibling to my son's father (or to me) had a child no one knew about.
