Although I have seen better deals last year, there is no guarantee they will be repeated.Rumor has it that FTDNA will soon be allowing transfer of these kit results to their own database sometime in early to mid 2012.There are choices, so I encourage those who are interested to check out the websites and descriptions and make sure you are getting what you really want.
FTDNA is still the standard for Y dna and mtdna comparisons.
Ancestry is supposed to also have an autosomal test coming out in 2012, but there hasn't been much information about it or its compatibility yet.SMGF is also working on one, so the market is about to expand on FF type tests in the very near future.
Gedmatch.com is a very good third party site to help analyze the raw data once you have your results.In most cases, the directions on the home page are pretty clear. I would be glad to walk you through your first few comparisons and show you the features I use most.
