FamilyTree DNA Holiday Sale

Some of you may remember from Roger Cobb’s (Mills) presentation last month that he was successful in solving several family mysteries using DNA testing from Family Tree DNA in Houston. Saturday, at the DFW Mayflower Society Compact Day Luncheon, he alerted me to the fact that Family Tree DNA has launched their holiday sales on testing. Here is the text copied from their email announcement:

As we ended our 8th Annual Genetic Genealogy Conference, several conference participants asked us to start our year-end sale as soon as possible. In answer to those requests we decided to start it immediately:
