For a limited time Family Tree DNA is offering its basic Y-DNA 12 marker test, previously offered in the National Geographic Geneographic Project, for $39. This special is targeted at the price-sensitive market segment and comes on the eve of the opening of WDYTYA Live in London of which the company is the DNA sponsor.
As the company announcement states, with this test your matches and ancestral origins largely depend on how your DNA compares to their database. People with the most common types of DNA will have hundreds of exact matches for this 12 marker test. For those further refinement will be possible by upgrading to more markers at additional cost, likely where the company will expect to recoup the cost of this loss leader.
Others with a rare paternal line may possibly have no exact matches.
