Now is a great time to order DNA kits for yourself or family members.  Most of the major 'players' in the DNA market are having sales right now.

23andMe has their health & ancestry kit on sale for $99 right now, which is $100 off the normal price.  If you are an Amazon Prime member, you can get free, fast shipping:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01G7PYQTM?aaxitk=2ws8WwD5dLUx8w0.y1Xarg&pd_rd_i=B01G7PYQTM&pf_rd_p=44fc3e0f-4b9e-4ed8-b33b-363a7257163d&hsa_cr_id=6670777740301&sb-ci-n=asinImage&sb-ci-v=https%3A%2F%2Fimages-na.ssl-images-amazon.com%2Fimages%2FI%2F41ZfKyStDkL.jpg&sb-ci-a=B01G7PYQTM  Their other tests are also currently on sale.

FamilyTreeDNA is also offering sales on their kits through 28 November.  (By clicking on this link, Wikitree gets a small referral credit.)

Ancestry also has discounted their autosomal test from $99 to $59. (Ditto re: link)

My Heritage has dropped their price from $79 to $49. (Ditto re: link)

I always suggest testing your oldest family members first (i.e. parents, grandparents).  These would make a great Christmas present!

I think the My Heritage one has been linked incorrectly. That one is going to Ancestry...

Thanks, Robynne.  I've repaired the MyHeritage link.

I tested with all of the above companies and highly recommend them! The more companies you test with, the more DNA cousin matches you find...still hoping to find that one with the elusive connecting family tree that will break my brick wall!!!

But if You can't afford it then don't break the bank.

I was lucky.

I only tested with FT DNA and then uploaded my DNA to my heritage. My mother did a test with My heritage, Those two places and tests were all we needed to find my mothers previously unknown family!!

Debbie . . . you only have one brick wall?!  surprise

I've tested with all of them also, and have been able to break down a couple brick walls.  Still many to go, though!  You are right about testing with as many as you can afford -- and of course testing your parents or grandparents if they're still alive.  I work exclusively off of my parents' tests.  My biggest brick wall breakthrough to date has been to discover my maternal grandmother's paternal side.  That was really exciting and ended up being someone other than who she had been told.

Robynne, That's awesome. I still need to break my main brick wall. The more that test with the companies I tested with, the more answers I may get.
Darlene, I have a couple brick walls, but only care about my maiden name Hughey line for now. Nobody with German roots test much at least in Ancestry. Those Thrulines are empty so I ignore them for now.
