Avoid higher prices

DNA testing company 23andMe is offering a substantial discount on both their Ancestry Edition and the Complete Edition tests until the end of March. If you want to know more about the test come to my Gene-O-Rama talk this coming Saturday afternoon at Library and Archives Canada. http://ogsottawa.on.ca/?page_id=101.

This TedMed talk which deals mainly with the health aspects of the 23andMe service provides a bit of background.

A discount applies to both tests. I recommend the Complete Edition at $299 US, plus shipping, as it gives you access to the raw data. The health-related results are a bonus. Go to https://www.23andme.com/partner/foa/

Also, remember that the cost of civil registration certificates of births, marriages and deaths for England and Wales increases on April 6. See details in the previous post at http://anglo-celtic-connections.blogspot.com/2010/03/gro-certificate-price-increase.html
