YDNA tests are now on sale for the entire month of December. YDNA37: Normal Price=$149; Promotional Price=$119. YDNA67: Normal Price=$239; Promotional Price=$199.
If you are an Alexander genealogy enthusiast and know an Alexander male (maybe even yourself) who is hard to buy a Christmas gift for, it is a fun gift for your entire Alexander family.
When you get your results in about 4-6 weeks, you can possibly solve the mysteries of your Alexander ancestry by comparing your results to the other testers, and corresponding with them.
Of the 200 Alexander men tested, 160 match at least one other while another 40 are awaiting their first match.
Tests can be ordered at https://www.familytreedna.com/group-join.aspx?Group=Alexande...
The project volunteers do the analysis and interpretation and matching, answering any questions you may have, all at no cost to you. Though it is simple enough you can easily do it on your own.
I have written a 15-page paper in Microsoft Word with many illustrations and examples to explain in simple fashion “DNA testing for genealogy purposes”. Some of the topics are: Which testing company should I use? Surname projects How many markers do I test? What is the cost of a test? Ordering a test The DNA test kit itself What happens after I test? Understanding your results; interpretation and analysis Will I match someone? How do I get the ancestry information of the people I match? Privacy issues Is there a public website where I can post my results? Your “deep ancestry” and haplogroups
