National DNA Day
On April 25, 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick's article, "The Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acids: A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid," was published in Nature.1 Thus began the DNA revolution.
In honor of that anniversary, Thomas MacEntee has deemed April 25th as DNA Day and other organizations have come forward to offer sales and specials that may be of interest to you (Think of this as a genealogist's own President's Day sale!)
Ancestry.com's price is $79.00. The offer ends April 26th. AncestryCanada price is 30% off ; AncestryUK is 25% off
MyHeritage is also offering kits for $79.00 but will bundle a kit with a subscription for even greater savings.
23 and Me is offering free shipping on their $99.00 autosomal kit with 10% off an additional kit
FamilyTreeDNA is offering Family Finder kits for $59.00
The last time these prices were this low was during the 2016 Holiday shopping season.
