FamilyTree DNA Update – DNA Saturdays February 15, 2020

I missed this in my earlier post – FamilyTree DNA Price Reductions for the New Year – January 14, 2020. I only noticed it today when I was visiting Thought this was important enough to include as this week’s DNA Saturdays post.

I didn’t notice FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA) had removed Y-25 (still available through projects for now) and Y-67 (available as an upgrade only if you have a lower level Y-DNA test; don’t know how long it will be available this way) from the list as well as the mtDNA Plus test.

FTDNA is one of a few companies that offer deep Y-DNA and mtDNA testing. Another company is YSEQ.net YSEQ offers several options for Y-DNA and mtDNA testing. You get basic Y-DNA and mtDNA haplogroups if you test with LivingDNA and 23andMe, but they aren’t as deep as what you can order from FTDNA and YSEQ. With Full Genomes you can get deep Y-DNA and mtDNA results. There are a few other companies that do deep Y-DNA and mtDNA testing, but those are generally more expensive than the ones I mentioned above most of the time.
