Family Tree DNA Big Holiday Sale

Family Tree DNA announced a big holiday sale with savings of $50 or more on all their tests. If you have not yet used DNA to help with your genealogy research, now is the time to save on the tests. They have tests for both Y-DNA and mtDNA. They also have excellent FAQs and tutorials to help.

To learn more and see the prices, go to: www.familytreedna.com

If you are Pennington male, be sure to use the Pennington DNA Project as one of the projects you wish to participate in, etc. If you can't find the link, then purchase the DNA test/s you want and then let Nick Penington (Nicholas.Penington@downstate.edu), PRA DNA Study Chairman, know you're taking the test. He will coordinate with you to be sure your results are shared with the PRA. All results are confidential and only your kit number and the tests results are shared with the PRA.

Be sure to read all the information and enter your oldest known Pennington ancestor and places of origins/migration. You can also upload a gedcom file that you can share (if you wish) so others can see your family lineage.
