Family Finder DNA Kits

You may not be aware, but I am the DNA Kit Coordinator for the Guild of One-Name Studies. Most of the Y-DNA kits (applicable to males only) were purchased through the Guild. The results can be seen at

In the last few weeks, the Guild has negotiated a deal for Family Finder kits - a special price of £60.00, which includes postage and handling, worldwide. This price is unique to Guild Members, and their DNA project participants. Several (E)URIDGEs have already completed this Family Finder test.

A Family Finder DNA test is available to males and females. It finds your relatives within 5 generations. It works by comparing your DNA to the DNA of others who have taken a Family Finder test in the Family Tree DNA database. This test uses a mixture of DNA you received from both parents (about 50% from your mother and about 50% from your father).

If you are interested in doing this Family Finder test, do contact me, or read the information from the Guild, available at
