Save money on Living DNA tests

Living DNA, the UK-based company which arrived on the genetic genealogy scene last year and has quickly won many admirers, is offering discounts on its dna testing kit.

The Living DNA test is a 3-in-1 test that not only covers your family ancestry and your motherline, it also, if the tester is male, explores the fatherline.

The test also sets out your dna mix across 80 world regions, including 21 in Britain and Ireland.

The discounts on offer vary depending on where you live and the currency you want to use, as follows:



Shipping/tax costs are additional. See terms and conditions.

I'm not sure when this special offer expires - the website says only 'limited time offer' - so I'd recommend you make your purchases quickly if you want to take advantage of the discounts while they're available.

FindMyPast.com launches Starter subscription with 70% discount

A new 'Starter' subscription has been launched by FindMyPast.com aimed primarily at beginner family historians in the United States.

The launch offer comes with a huge 70% discount on the 12-month option, reducing its cost from $114.50 to just $34.95. (The monthly option does not attract a discount; it costs $9.95 a month.)

As well as access to FindMyPast's online family tree builder, the Starter subscription includes more than 2.9 billion records including:

  • US immigration & travel records: This collection includes records of people leaving the UK between 1890 and 1960, and passenger lists from states including Florida and California
  • US birth, marriage and death records: Notable record sets in our Starter Package are CA births and marriages, NY marriages and SC deaths. FindMyPast's comprehensive marriage collection, spanning 360 years, is not included (see Premium)
  • US Newspapers: Historic newspapers are a valuable – and often underutilized – resource for family history researchers. They contain family announcements, details about criminal cases, military commendations and much more.
  • UK & Irish Censuses: Essential for Americans with Irish or British heritage.
  • Access to FMP's free collections of US census records and Irish Parish Catholic Registers.

For comparison, the regular 'full' package, now known as Premium, costs $239.40 for a year or $19.95 for a month, and gives access to more than 8 billion records.
