This notice from Family Tree DNA just landed in the inbox and may be of interest to my readers.  This is the company we used to test my brother’s DNA and received a successful match.  I highly recommend them.

By now you may have already heard of our newest test, which has received substantial exposure in the press: the Family Finder test.

Since several people that have seen the news about this test have approached us for more information, allow me to briefly give you the key elements of the Family Finder test:

You may find relatives in any of your lines, and either males or females can take this test!

The Family Finder test matches you confidently with any cousin within four to five generations. There are dizzying possibilities!

The possibilities to find matches abound:

Special Note: The Family Finder test requires an untouched vial of DNA. If your kit does not have an extra vial on file, we will mail a collection kit for a new DNA extraction. After ordering you will be notified by email whether we are able to use a stored vial or will be mailing a new collection kit.
