Holiday sale on DNA test kits for Allison/Ellison DNA Project
Through December 31, 2009, the company that is co-ordinating our Allison/Ellison DNA Project is offering a holiday reduction in the prices of the 37 marker and 67 marker Y-chromosome DNA tests.The Y-DNA test traces your father's direct ALLISON or ELLISON paternal line.
I want to inform all ALLISON and ELLISON men who are not yet members of the Allison/Ellison DNA Project and have been thinking about ordering a DNA test kit that for the next month there is this great opportunity to order a Y-DNA test kits at reduced prices.
Any Allison male who is interested in ordering a DNA test kit can use the link below to submit your name, mailing address, e-mail address, etc. to order a DNA sample kit to be mailed to you and join the Allison/Ellison DNA Project.
Scroll down to "Male Line Testing" and order either the 37 or 67 marker test kit.
The method of obtaining the DNA cells is simple and painless and doesn't involve any drawing of blood. The type of DNA that is analyzed for genealogical purposes doesn't provide any data about medical conditions. The DNA testing company sends a small tube with Q-tip-like swabs to each participant. All that needs to be done is to swab the inside of the cheek to collect some cells, replace the swabs in the tube and mail it back to the company. In about 8 weeks the company informs the participants about the results and lets them know if their score matches anyone else in the DNA database. If your score is a close match to one or more men with the Allison or Ellison surname, you have found a long-lost cousin.
There are now more than 110 men who are members of the Allison/Ellison DNA Project, so your DNA score may match one or more current members with whom you can share genealogical information and learn more about your early ancestry. The 110+ participants live in England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States.
I'll be happy to answer your questions. I look forward to hearing from you.
