As mentioned on https://dnaquest.org/, MyHeritage is giving away 15,000 DNA kits to adoptees. You have until April 30, 2018 to apply.
Participation in this project is open to adoptees seeking to find their biological family members, and to parents and other family members looking for a child they had placed in adoption years ago. Preference will be given to people who are not able to afford genetic testing. Leveraging the power of genetic genealogy opens new doors in the search for relatives, and we believe everyone should be able to access this valuable technology.
Applications are open until April 30, 2018.
If you have already tested with another company, you can do a free transfer to MyHeritage which is the route for those who have tested elsewhere as the main goal is to help adoptees who can’t afford to test.
Already taken a DNA test?If you have already tested with another DNA service, you can upload your DNA data to MyHeritage for free to participate in this project. You will receive more matches and benefit others searching for their biological family.
This was first offered to adoptees in Israel and is now being offered to adoptees in the U.S.
Those chosen will be notified May 16, 2018 (remember to check your Spam folder on the off-chance your e-mail provider tagged it as spam). Kits will be shipped by May 31, 2018 and your results should start coming in around July 2018 if you send in your kit timely. I usually tell people to allow 6 – 8 weeks after the company receives your DNA kit as a general rule. A kit can process faster or slower, depending on many factors.
