11th: DNA special

Anyone still thinking about joining in the fascination of dna projects but put off by the cost, now is an excellent time to jump in.
Family Tree DNA are offering a great discount on their Y-DNA37 test, throwing in an mtDNA test for less than the usual price of just the Y-DNA37 and significantly less than the usual price for this combined test.
37 markers is a good entry level for genealogical purposes, and can always be upgraded to 67 at a later stage if interesting matches ensue.
Find your surname of choice, and join the relevant project.
The ones I have an interest in are all on the DNA Projects Portal, but a search at either the World Families Network pages, or Family Tree DNA will give you more options.
