Hey, everyone! There were quite a few of you interested in the Ancestry DNA kit when I wrote about it, so I just wanted to let you know that there’s a sale going on this weekend. It really is the best one they have all year, and this year the discount is just as steep as last. You can get AncestryDNA for just $49 now through 8:59p Pacific on November 30, 2020.
This 50% off is the steepest discount I have ever seen for AncestryDNA. If you’ve been thinking about trying it for a while, now is the time to do it at just $49.
Introducing DNA + Family Tree Bundle
New since last year’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday AncestryDNA sale, the company has introduced the AncestryDNA + Family Tree Bundle.
For $50 — just $1 more — you can get everything included in the standard AncestryDNA bundle plus three months of the Ancestry World Explorer subscription. This subscription lets you search records from around the world as you pursue your family’s genealogy.
Last year, Ancestry released a new product: AncestryHealth. If you want to know how your DNA could potentially affect your future health, this is a product worth looking at. Normally it’s $179, but until 8:59p Pacific on December 31, 2020, it’s only $99.
The best ways to interpret these tests is to sit down with a professional genetic counselor. The meeting may even be covered by your health insurance.
You also need to know you can’t get AncestryHealth in New York, Rhode Island or New Jersey. For more deets, scroll to the bottom of this post.
Using Ancestry for Genealogy Research
Ancestry is one of the primary US-based sites that allows you to sift through historical documents to find your ancestors and build your family tree. The records best serve those whose family has been in the US for a while. Many, though not all, European countries will also turn up records. Records for other regions of the world can be sparse to nonexistent. This is a common trait throughout many US-based genealogical databases.
As a part of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale, you can get an Ancestry.com subscription for 50% off through Cyber Monday. This subscription will allow you — or whoever you gift it to — to search through census records, religious documents, muster rolls and more as you build your family tree.
For the purposes of the sale, these prices will be available through 8:59p Pacific on November 30, or Cyber Monday.
Hope this helps! Happy Thanksgiving and Black Friday!
