Re: DNA genealogy's price tag
In Response To: DNA genealogy's price tag ()
I took my test from Family Tree DNA in 2003, and the price was $299.00. My brother and cousins took their test through Howard University, and I believe it was somewhere around the same price. The test from Howard University for one of my female ancestors, showed the same information I got from Family Tree DNA. However, they do not connect to DNA Cousins, as Family Tree DNA does. The DNA Cousins I am in contact with took DNA tests from many sources.
I learned a lot about my female line from those who have contacted me. Even though most are in Europe, the line I am connected to came from North Africa into Europe over 45,000 years ago. This is a female and I am assuming that she traveled in a tribe, with a male. This line lived throughout Europe, and entered England around 259 AD. The males were part of the Knights' of the Roundtable who fought against Ireland for England. I had much of this information before I took the DNA test. However, the information was on the male side, and I was surprised to see the same genealogy on the female side. On my female side, we are connected to Henry VIII, through the wife of Henry VII. In other words the mother of Henry the VIII is on my direct female line. We are also connected to George Washington through his grandmother, Mildred Warner (whose parents were John and Elizabeth Lewis), who married Lawrence Washington.
This is information I dug up on my own, and which was confirmed with my DNA test.
