Current November 2018 DNA Sales

You can also check here: First Round of November 2018 DNA Sales as I am trying to update both it and this post as 23andMe, AncestryDNA, LivingDNA, MyHeritageDNA, Dante Labs, and Geno 2.0 Next all have sales going on. I expect FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) and FindMyPastDNA to join the sale bandwagon soon – I restricted the First Round to only the above companies for now so it’s probably easier to navigate that list than this much longer list although I did break this post into Sales and Not On Sale Sections.

Last updated mid afternoon of November 16, 2018: made price adjustments as needed; updated November 15, 2018: Added GroupOn $49.99 Sale for Geno 2.0 Next and minor price changes; updated November 14, 2018: added HomeDNA’s GPS Origins Promo Code and minor price changes; updated November 13, 2018: added FTDNA Thanksgiving Sale and made minor price changes; updated November 12, 2018: mostly minor price changes; updated November 6, 2018: added Black Friday Sneak Peek Sales for CVS, Walgreens, and Target, added Best Buy as they are currently running a $69 sale; updated November 5, 2018: minor price changes; updated November 4, 2018 – minor price changes; updated November 3, 2018: added GEDmatch/GEDmatch Genesis to the list an minor changes due to major sales going on; updated November 2, 2018 – added MyHeritageDNA sale price as $49.00 (NOTE: None of the Amazon or other links below are affiliate links – they are direct links to the product or product line on Amazon, GroupOn, EBay, or to the company’s website). Prices with * tend to change prices on Amazon daily or almost daily except during major sales, prices with ** tend to change less frequently on Amazon than daily, but more frequently than the majority of tests on Amazon that only infrequently change prices.

As always, check prices before you order! You can also check EBay and Amazon in case you find a lower price there, but make sure it’s for the same company and test. Some of the companies show an end date for their sale prices, but many don’t. Amazon loves to raise and lower prices on DNA tests on a somewhat regular basis, usually every few days for some of the major companies, bit less often for other companies.

As of November 15, 2018 (original post was on November 1, 2018, and modified as needed), the following companies are offering DNA sales. I am also including the general pricing for a number of other DNA companies that aren’t offering sales right now. I will update this post as new sales are added or current sales end.

Tests on Sale (usually checked daily, and sometimes several times a day as Amazon has a habit of raising or lowering prices later in the day):

23andMehttps://www.23andme.com/ Ancestry (ethnicity) only kit One Ancestry Service kit for $69 or two or more kits for $49 each. Offer ends Nov 22, 2018. regular price $99Amazon link and free shipping: https://www.amazon.com/23andMe-Ancestry-Personal-Genetic-Service/dp/B01LZ5K87Z/ sale price $69.00; Ancestry + Health regular price $199. Amazon has Ancestry + Health – https://www.amazon.com/23andMe-DNA-Test-Ancestry-collection/dp/B01G7PYQTM/, regular price $199.00  (last update check mid afternoon of November 16, 2018, but can vary every couple of days so check Amazon).

AncestryDNA: https://www.ancestry.com/dna/ https://www.amazon.com/AncestryDNA-Genetic-Testing/dp/B00TRLVKW0/ varies as they are offering slightly different deals to various customers, according to The DNA Geek: https://thednageek.com/23andme-november-sale/. When I go to AncestryDNA without logging in, I get a blurb for $59 with Buy 2, Get 1 Free, offer (NOTE: you need to click on the Buy 2, Get 1 Free button if you want the deal) – no longer see the Buy 2, Get 1 Free offer as of November 6, 2018 although it varies as I have seen Buy 4, Get 1 Free, Buy 3, Get 1 Free offers as well ends November 21, 2018. When I log in, I get the $59/kit, but when I added 3 kits to the order, it doesn’t show the third one as being free. Yet, if I click on the special button when I am not logged in, it gives me the third kit free.   in addition to the $89 sale price for second and additional kits purchased in one order (first test costs regular price of $99) if ordered from AncestryDNA, Amazon has a sale price of  $68.99* (valid as of mid afternoon of November 16, 2018, but Amazon often changes the price about every day for this test except during major sales) plus free shipping. Check other vendors on Amazon as sometimes they are cheaper than the listed Amazon price in the link.

Don’t know if this is a targeted sale on the AncestryDNA site or available to everyone, but seeing on their website if I go to add a DNA test; I also see it if I am not logged into my account

SAVE NOW. Add more kits to your order for only $89/ea

Also, check EBay as you can often find AncestryDNA kits cheaper on it. In general, you can usually find Buy It Now AncestryDNA kits around $45 – 55 on EBay (make sure it’s an AncestryDNA kit as EBay searches often pull up other companies’ kits when using Ancestry DNA as your search parameter); for the auctions, it can vary widely depending on how an auction goes.

Best Buy, they offer the 23andMe kit only for $29.99 and the kit + lab fees for $69.00; regular price $99.00 (ethnicity and matching only, no health reports) – https://www.bestbuy.com/site/searchpage.jsp?st=23-and-me&_dyncharset=UTF-8&id=pcat17071&type=page&sc=Global&cp=1&nrp=&sp=&qp=&list=n&af=true&iht=y&usc=All+Categories&ks=960&keys=keys. I did not find a Black Friday DNA sale for Best Buy.

CVS Pharmacy Black Friday Sale Sneak Peek: In checking other Black Friday DNA Sales, I found CVS Pharmacy is offering 23andMe kit for free after Extra Bucks Rewards (lab fee extra, $70 or $170, depending on if you want health reports or not). You can see the ad at https://bestblackfriday.com/deal/146751. Don’t order before Black Friday sale starts.

Sometimes, Helix will offer a sale where Helix kit is free with some tests, but only if you order the kit with those tests with the lower Helix kit price. In general, you only need one Helix kit/individual so once you have a Helix DNA kit for a person, you don’t need another one.

Geno 2.0 Next – On sale (since August 22, 2018, sale price has changed numerous times since August 2018, with no word on when sale ends) at Helix, National Geographic, GroupOn, and Amazon (price varies a bit between the various links below) https://www.helix.com/shop/national-geographic-geno-2-next-generation/ $69.99 + another $0.00 (free) if you need a Helix DNA kit as of November 16, 2018 if you need a Helix kit for an individual; regular price tends to run $149.95 or $199.95 which includes the Helix DNA kit cost – No word on when this sale price ends. If you order directly from National Geographic (Nat Geo), it’s on sale temporarily for $69.95. regular price $99.95 (regular price varies between $149.95 to $199.00 or sometimes $199.95 on Nat Geo website; if the person has previously tested with Helix for any other DNA test, don’t order from Nat Geo as you are paying for a kit that you don’t need). Amazon sale price is $99.99* with free shipping (Amazon price current as of November 16, 2018; tends to go back to around $99.95 on a regular basis when a sale ends) and is cheaper if you need a Helix kit for a person due to free shipping that Amazon offers. It is also on sale on GroupOn https://www.groupon.com/deals/n-helix-ancestry-kit  sale price $49.99 $65.00 (occasionally cheaper by a few $) Note: U. S. kits are processed by Helix (spit kit) and non-U.S. kits are processed by FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) – cheek swab. Non-U.S. kits are showing an unavailable as of late September 2018 – no word on when they will become available again.

Helix – https://www.helix.com/collections/all/ – (direct link to Helix list of DNA tests offered); Amazon list of Helix tests doesn’t include all Helix items listed on the Helix site so you may need to search for specific tests or items if you are checking Amazon for something not in the above Amazon link; for DNA Passport, see above; Baby Glimpse:  the new URL only appears to offer one kit so you would need to order two tests and two kits for best results, one for each parent if both needed a kit: https://www.helix.com/products/humancode-babyglimpse test on sale for $49.00 and the Helix DNA kit is on sale for $40.00, regular price of DNA kit is $80 if you need a Helix DNA kit for an individual. On Amazon (check price as some days it’s a lot cheaper on Amazon and other days it’s cheaper on Helix; as of November 16, 2018, it’s cheaper on Amazon, but that can change any day; monitoring daily) with free shipping. From the description, it sounds like you can still compare if you order tests for both parents;  see DNA Passport or possibly Geno 2.0 above or embody below for cheaper way to get the kits as two DNA Passport kits + test from Helix would run you $89.99 x2 which is slightly cheaper than two kits using the Baby Glimpse link and you get DNA Passport results as a bonus. Going this route would cost you about the same, but you wouldn’t need to order the two Helix DNA kits for Baby Glimpse as you could use your DNA Passport Helix kits for the results. embodyDNA: https://www.helix.com/shop/lose-it-embodydna/ price $48.99 + $14 Helix kit (as of November 16, 2018) ; regular price is $109.99 + $80.00 for Helix DNA kit; on Amazon (currently unavailable, $53.99 + free shipping as of November 16, 2018, but cheaper on Helix if you don’t need a Helix DNA kit; check pricing as Amazon frequently changes prices on a regular basis) with free shipping. GoalGetter: https://www.helix.com/shop/insidetracker-goalgetter/ sale price $91.00 $130.00 + another $14.00 if you need Helix DNA kit; regular price $260.00 + $80.00 if you need Helix DNA kit – not seeing GoalGetter on Amazon. Rest of Helix DNA tests are regular price and Helix kits are regular price of $80.00 if you need a Helix DNA kit for an individual. However, Helix sometimes does limited sales so check any test you are considering to see if it’s on sale.

HomeDNA / GPS Origins Ancestry Testhttps://homedna.com/product/gps-originsregular price $199.95 (looks at over 80,000 autosomal markers). Sometimes available on GroupOn. Promo Code EARLYBIRD18 sale price $89.00 + free shipping (still available as of November 16, 2018).

LivingDNA https://www.livingdna.com/ sale price $79.00 through November 22, 2018; regular price is $99; LivingDNA or FindMyPastDNA used to be available on Amazon – https://www.amazon.com/3-Living-DNA-Ancestry-Test/dp/B07HWVRPNZ/ (temporarily unavailable on Amazon as of November 16, 2018 and became unavailable in mid-October 2018). LivingDNA offers free limited transfers, but you won’t get a few benefits if you go this route that you would get if you order the test directly from LivingDNA; they have indicated they will offer discounted upgrades for those who transfer and want the extra benefits, but no word on when or how much it will cost). For example, you won’t get haplogroups (mtDNA, Y-DNA – if male) and originally you wouldn’t get ethnicity results when I did a free transfer back in December 2017, but looks like they may be offering ethnicity results for the free transfers during the beta test (it’s not clear if you get to keep the ethnicity results after the beta test ends and it doesn’t appear those who upload after the beta test will get them without paying some kind of upgrade fee) after your transfer processes (estimated between August 8 – October 31, 2018 for the free transfers to process; they are rolling them out in small groups). You would have to order a kit from LivingDNA to get those benefits. They are partnering with FindMyPast and FindMyPast will be offering LivingDNA kits packaged with FindMyPastDNA (or some similar language) at some point, similar to how MyHeritageDNA uses FTDNA kits with MyHeritage logo on the package. They are slowly rolling out matching starting August 8, 2018 and plan on finishing by sometime in October 2018. Two of my three transferred results are showing one (1) or two (2) matches, but none have finished processing as of mid afternoon November 16, 2018.

MyHeritageDNAhttps://www.myheritage.com/dnasale price $49 with free shipping if you order 2+ kits in a single order, regular price $79; Amazon for $69.00 + $4.00 coupon available if you click on it (still valid as of November 15, 2018) with free shipping and FTDNA‘s Amazon price is $75.99 (as of November 15, 2018). MyHeritageDNA accepts free transfers from FTDNA as well as from AncestryDNA, LivingDNA, and 23andMe (including v5 chip now). They will be making some major changes to those who upload raw data transfers after November 30, 2018); it won’t affect you if you upload your raw data before December 1, 2018 as they are grandfathering in people who upload raw data before December 1, 2018 and they will retain full access.

Silverberry Genomix: https://silverberrygenomix.com/ sale on website; Amazon link for all Silverberry Genomix products available, usually with free shipping – check to see if any kits are on sale on Amazon.

WeGene https://www.wegene.com/en/ free upload if you tested with 23andMe (including v5 chip) or AncestryDNA; regular price if you need to order a kit from WeGene (it’s a Chinese company and you would need to figure out the exchange rate if you buy a kit from them and also probably need a way to read Chinese since the main WeGene is in Chinese). For now, they don’t accept FTDNAMyHeritageLivingDNA, etc. It includes basic to intermediate haplogroup(s) – mtDNA and Y-DNA (males only).

DNA companies not offering sales at this time (November 16, 2018):

AncestryDNA (see Sale Section above)https://www.ancestry.com/dna/ – as noted in the Test on Sale section above, I don’t know if the price showing on my Ancestry account is one available to everybody or only sent to a group of members. $99 – regular price; as of  the date of this blog post, it’s on sale on Amazon (price can vary almost daily, click on the link or see the Sale Section above). Worth noting sometimes Ancestry sends individual e-mails to small groups of its users that includes DNA sale prices, but those tend to be limited to the people who received the e-mails. Also, check EBay as you can often find AncestryDNA kits cheaper on it, usually in the $45 – 55 range and shipping may or may not be free.

You can also check Amazon or EBay as other alternatives.

GenePlaza https://www.geneplaza.com/ – no sale – they offer two choices – purchase a kit (regular price $145, but sometimes on sale for $85 (update September, 2018; to order a test, they refer you to GenCove, but the link to GenCove tells you they no longer sell the test) ; they were offering $6 credit (may no longer apply as of early September 2018) that applies to many, but not all, apps offered by GenePlaza) from them or free upload if you tested with most major DNA companies (23andMe, AncestryDNA, and GenCove – check with GenePlaza if you tested elsewhere) with small bonus (NOTE: credit may no longer be available: $3 credit if you do the free upload; $6 credit if you order a kit from them; (NOTE: credit may not apply to all apps offered) to spend on different apps they offer. Don’t see a price for how much the kit would cost if you needed to order one. App prices range from $1.49 to $5.49. Some of the individual tests are interesting enough to check out. Not available on Amazon.

Helix https://www.helix.com/ – Amazon link: Amazon list of Helix tests some of the individual tests are on sale (check above for the handful on sale, includes Geno 2.0 Next, DNA Passport, Baby Glimpse (Helix kits discounted with DNA test regular price); embodyDNA; and GoalGetter, but you would need to check each one as the sales come and go on a regular basis.  For whatever reason, Helix doesn’t make it easy to view pricing for each test without opening each test individually which is a pain in the neck. This link, https://www.helix.com/store/all, gives you each test available, but you would need to check each test for current pricing. This link on my blog gives the Helix tests currently available on Helix: List of DNA Tests Offered Through Helix.

HomeDNA https://homedna.com/  Many of the below test kits are available at CVS Pharmacy, Rite Aid Pharmacy, Walgreens, and Wal-Mart which would save you any applicable shipping costs, but would be subject to local sales tax. Also, the kits available locally usually are only for the testing kit and you would need to pay additional lab processing fees to HomeDNA when you send in the kit. (Note: if you order a kit directly from HomeDNA, as opposed to doing a raw data upload from another company, it will be a cheek swab); some of the tests may be available on Amazon and on GroupOn.

The tests currently offered directly on HomeDNA are as follows with regular prices listed below :

Ancestry:
GPS Origins Ancestry Test $199.95 (looks at over 80,000 autosomal markers); also available on Amazon. Sometimes available on GroupOn.
GPS Origins Ancestry Test – Upload Your Raw Data (can upload from most of the major DNA testing companies – AncestryDNA, 23andMe, FamilyTree DNA, Geno 2.0 but not 2.0 Next unless it was done by FamilyTree) $39.00 (number of markers depends on which company you transfer results from)
GPS Origins Ancestry Test – African Edition $199.00
GPS Origins Ancestry Test – Asian Edition $199.00
HomeDNA Starter Ancestry Test $69.00 (13 CODIS markers)
DNA Origins Maternal Lineage (mtDNA) $69.00 (HVR1, 2, and 3 regions – it’s not a full mtDNA test based on what other companies offer)
DNA Origins Paternal Lineage (Y-DNA) $69.00 (appears to look at 16 Y-STRs) – Males only
HomeDNA Advanced Ancestry Test $124.00 (appears to be a combination of Ancestry Test, Maternal Test, and Paternal Test)

Health and Beauty:
HomeDNA Food and Pet Sensitivity $99.00 (Nuts, Dairy, Wheat, Pets)
HomeDNA Healthy Weight $119.00
HomeDNA Skin Care $99.00
HomeDNA Paternity $164.00 (has both at-home or legal testing options – it doesn’t say, but I would expect legal testing to include additional fees – includes a child kit, a possible father kit, and biological mother kit (mother’s participation is optional, but recommended) Not for New York residents due to New York requirements for legal paternity testing.

Pets:
Mixed-Breed Dog Identification DNA Test and Life Plan $125.00 (learn about your mixed-breed dog’s lineage)
Cat DNA Health Screen and Life Plan $125.00 (screen your cat for over 40 genetic diseases and traits)
Dog DNA Health Screen and Life Plan $125.00 (screen your dog for over 100 genetic diseases and traits)

End of HomeDNA list

Promethease https://www.promethease.com/ Regular price uploads start at $12 with some uploads running more if the raw data file size is larger than average (Genes for Good, for example). They have offered free uploads several times in the past and will probably do it again in the near future. Note: this isn’t a DNA test, but uses your raw data from other companies (23andMe, Ancestry, FTDNA, etc.) to generate reports.

Rite Aid: https://www.riteaid.com/shop/23andme-genetic-personal-service KIT ONLY $29.99 (lab fees are $70 or $170 depending on if you want health reports.). Having a Black Friday Sale.

TeloYears https://www.teloyears.com/home/ prices: TeloYears Health $99 TeloYears Health + Ancestry $169 (regular price $199, but seems to be a standard discount as opposed to a sale price). They also do the TribeCode (see below) tests. Not available on Amazon. Temporarily in the Sales Section since it is offering a limited time sale right now.

TribeCode Tribecode$99 regular price for Advanced Ancestry; kit is ordered through TeloYears (see above) and appears to be the Ancestry/ethnicity portion only. Not available on Amazon. Once you order the kit from TeloYears and register it, you qualify to earn TribeCoins which can be used for a variety of purposes. You can also earn TribeCoins, by logging into TribeCode and going to the Community section. Logging in daily to TribeCode generally generates 1 TribeCoin/day.

uBiome https://ubiome.com/consumer/explorer/  regular prices ranging from $89 to $399 with new option for ExplorerGutPlus*** https://shop.ubiome.com/pages/explorer-plus (4 SmartGut tests delivered during the year for $399 sale price – valid as of mid afternoon of November 14, 2018, regular price $799), depending on which tests you want run; sometimes goes on sale for a lot less. If you go with one of the subscription options, you get 20 – 25% discount; doesn’t apply to ExplorerGutPlus, but does apply to the other options in the first uBiome link above. This isn’t a regular genealogical DNA test like many of the others listed in this post. It checks between 1 and 5 sites for bacterial DNA (mouth, skin, nose, genital, gut). I have taken this test in the past when it was on sale as I was curious as to what it would show. Interestingly, some insurance companies will pay some of the cost. Click on this link: https://ubiome.com/clinical/smartgut/ and see if your insurance company will cover it. The Smart Gut kit is only one of the sites (gut, specifically, a stool sample). The beta ended so they are no longer writing off what’s not covered by insurance (ended mid-August 2018), but you can still check and see how much it would cost based on what your insurance covers. Shame they haven’t figured out a way to get insurance companies to cover the other four sites yet. I have done the Smart Gut kit a number of times over the last 3 years.

***From the link:

How does ExplorerPlus™ differ from SmartGut™?

ExplorerPlus is a wellness product that offers a broader view into your microbiome, providing more comprehensive information about your microbiome for wellness, using a patented combination of full metagenomic and marker-based sequencing.

SmartGut**** is a medical test ordered by a doctor and reimbursed by insurance, processed in our CLIA-licensed and CAP-accredited laboratory. SmartGut helps you and your doctor better understand your symptoms for gut conditions, including IBD, IBS, Crohn’s, and ulcerative colitis, providing you and your doctor valuable insights to help guide diagnosis and treatment. It also examines risk factors for health conditions like diabetes, obesity, and kidney stones.

****More comprehensive microbiome access also coming to SmartGut!

Veritas https://www.veritasgenetics.com/  here’s a link to their 30x read DNA kit: https://www.veritasgenetics.com/mygenome. Regular price $999 for their 30x read. For additional information, here’s a link to the company’s PDF: https://www.veritasgenetics.com/sites/default/files/media/documents/VG_ProductOnePager_myGenome_email.pdf – Not available on Amazon.

WeGene https://www.wegene.com/en/ free upload if you tested with 23andMe (including v5 chip) or AncestryDNA; regular price if you need to order a kit from WeGene (it’s a Chinese company and you would need to figure out the exchange rate if you buy a kit from them). For now, they don’t accept FTDNA, etc. It includes basic to intermediate haplogroup(s) – mtDNA and Y-DNA (males only). Have WeGene in the Sale and non-Sale sections since you can order a kit for them at regular price if you don’t use AncestryDNA or 23andMe free upload option. Not available on Amazon. It’s also in the Sales Section since you can upload raw data from 23andMe (including v5 chip) and AncestryDNA free. Exchange rate was around $60 – 70 when I checked at different times.

YSEQ.net https://www.yseq.net/ regular prices as YSEQ rarely does sales although they occasionally will do a sale. Will continue checking in case they do a sale for DNA Day. Prices range, depending on if you want an individual Y-DNA SNP or various STR ranges, mtDNA (several options) to a 15x read, 30xread, or 50xread full DNA test. 15x read: $740; 30x read: (+ $600 above 15x read price) ; 50x read: (+$1,430 above 15x read price) ; Other Extras (price is in addition to whatever read you order) add $90 if you want USB drive sent to you (otherwise, you can download your results through a link for no additional cost); Sanger extra Y-DNA results (up to 10 Y-DNA SNPs): $100; you receive 4 cheek swabs and you need to use all four and mail them back to YSEQ. Individual SNPs tend to run $18. YSEQ also offers Y-STR testing, mtDNA, and Haplogroup panels. It’s a good alternative to FTDNA in some ways, but doesn’t offer matching. It is a great way to cheaply verify Y-DNA comparisons between males who should share Y-DNA. For the full DNA test, they’re offering a 23andMe type autosomal raw data option that may be usable on sites that accept 23andMe transfers. Located in Germany. Cheek swab

Starting on Monday, November 19, 2018 at 9 A. M. U. S. Eastern Time, Veritas is offering its myGenome test for $199.00 to the first 1,000 orders. It’s regular price is $999.00.

Hey all,

We wanted you to be the first to know, that beginning Monday (11/19) at 9:00 AM ET, for 48 hours only, we will be offering myGenome for $199 for the first 1,000 orders!

If you have been thinking about getting a DNA test, this is the perfect opportunity.

Can it be used for genealogical purposes? Yes it should be, see my post on Dante Labs Black Friday Tease on Facebook, specifically this part which gives you the steps needed to create a 23andMe v3 type file that you can upload to several places; the second link to GitHub gives the details you will need to make it work:

While the test has limited benefit for genealogical purposes, there are ways to make it useful. If you can get a VCF file from the company (don’t know if they offer one, but several DNA companies include a VCF file), then you can upload it to Genesis GEDmatch. I blogged about how to create a pseudo-23andMe v3 file at: https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2018/08/18/extract-simulated-23andme-v3-style-file-from-whole-genome-bam-file/, or you can simply go to https://github.com/tkrahn/extract23 and follow the instructions. You should then upload the resulting file to FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA), MyHeritageDNA, GEDmatch, and possibly LivingDNA/FindMyPastDNA.

.You may need to hook up with an IT person if you are tech challenged. If I ever get a chance to do this, I have some friends who are in IT that would be able to help me get a file that works.

This is a great price and at some point in the not too distant future, experts believe full DNA testing will get as low as $100. It’s probably a few years down the road, but there are a growing number of companies striving to achieve this price point. For example, One Company Offers To Sequence Your Genome Free Of Charge, Then Let You Profit From It — Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter (note I have a referral link in that post where I get 100 credits if you use the link to join) is working on making DNA kits free, but are offering a DNA kit for $99.00 if you don’t want to wait for a free kit.

Viet-Cajun Cuisine – I Haven’t Seen It All

I receive e-mails from the Wichita Eagle, a local newspaper, on a regular basis. The latest e-mail included a new restaurant opening in the downtown area, https://www.kansas.com/entertainment/restaurants/dining-with-denise-neil/article221723580.html.

Diners who visit will find a menu full of the “Viet-Cajun”-style dishes that owners Darryl and Nith Huynh grew to love when they lived in Houston. They predict one of their biggest sellers will be their crawfish pho, a soup that blends the best flavors of Cajun and Vietnamese fare.

The menu includes several familiar Cajun dishes like gumbo and etouffee as well as many seafood dishes that are hard to find in Wichita, including lobster, crab, shrimp and clams. People can choose different sauces for their dishes, from red curry to garlic butter.

What was intriguing, for me, was the Cajun aspect. I grew up not too far from New Orleans, Louisiana (bit over an hour by today’s speed limit) and enjoy some forms of Cajun and Creole cuisine. There are already a couple of Cajun/Creole restaurants in town, but I believe this is the first to offer Viet-Cajun cuisine. You can view their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Mama-Niths-Crawfish-1631944777019717/. https://www.facebook.com/Mama-Niths-Crawfish-1631944777019717/. Prior to this article, I hadn’t heard of Viet-Cajun cuisine. Here’s one article on the topic: https://learningenglish.voanews.com/a/vietnam-cajun-food-mixes-vietnamese-and-southern-us-cultures/4533166.html.

Definitely adding this cuisine to my “I Haven’t Seen It All” category.

Dante Labs Black Friday Tease on Facebook

As I scrolled through Facebook a few minutes ago, I came across a Dante Labs tease:

https://www.facebook.com/DanteLabs/posts/737687399928047

Genetics will change forever this Black Friday. Nov. 18: Big Things are about to come. Stay tuned!

Black Friday Offer is about to come! Stay tuned
Nov. 18 2018. Big things are happening!

You can visit Dante Labs several places. On their website, https://us.dantelabs.com/collections/our-tests (direct link to their tests); on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=bl_dp_s_web_0?ie=UTF8&search-alias=aps&field-keywords=Dante+Labs+Diagnostics (the first few are Dante Labs, stop once you hit non-DNA items.

I include Dante Labs in my monthly DNA Sales sticky post: Current November 2018 DNA Sales. At least one test is usually on sale, https://us.dantelabs.com/collections/our-tests/products/whole-genome-sequencing-wgs-full-dna-analysis – current sale price is $499.00, but generally on sale for $599.00, regular price $899.00. It did hit a low of under $400 back on DNA Day 2018.

While the test has limited benefit for genealogical purposes, there are ways to make it useful. If you can get a VCF file from the company (don’t know if they offer one, but several DNA companies include a VCF file), then you can upload it to Genesis GEDmatch. I blogged about how to create a pseudo-23andMe v3 file at: https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/2018/08/18/extract-simulated-23andme-v3-style-file-from-whole-genome-bam-file/, or you can simply go to https://github.com/tkrahn/extract23 and follow the instructions. You should then upload the resulting file to FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA), MyHeritageDNA, GEDmatch, and possibly LivingDNA/FindMyPastDNA.
