Ill check it out, wow, thats a pretty good price. From what I know, though its probably just an autosomal, which only goes back 125 years. Which is like your granparents, nothing furthur. You wont see a mitochondrial test at that price, and you may not get a haplogroup at that price either. When i did first dna test, i was disappointed, while it was $79 it only gave info on the cultural groups, no haplogroup. Im a Hull, Foote, Warenne and Graves descendant,but yet there was no English in my report. Then i learned about the different types of Ancestry test, and realized id done Autosommal. My first Hull ancestor is 200 years back, so thats why it didnt show on test., therefore be careful with a deal, you really need to research what your getting before purchasing a test. In order to match up to distant relatives, u need a haplogroup, and the test needs to go back more than 125 years.

The offer I saw is only for the test.  Additional description says shipping is extra $12.95 each way--bringing it close to usual $79.
