MyHeritage DNA: lowest price of the year

MyHeritage is offering a 50% saving on its autosomal DNA Ancestry-only test kit. As far as I can establish, this generous discount is on offer to US and UK & Ireland researchers but it may also be available to family historians based elsewhere. To find out, click the image. The link will automatically take you to your 'local' offer, if there is one.

For US researchers the price of the kit is reduced from US$79 to just US$39.

For Ireland & UK based researchers, the kit is down from £79 to £39.

In both cases there's a bonus offer: Purchase two or more DNA test kits and you'll receive FREE shipping.

The offers will expire at 11:59pm on Sunday 31 May.
