Now’s your chance to check out Ancestry.com’s free DNA kit.

Ancestry.com free DNA kit with 6 month subscription.

Ancestry.com gives a free DNA kit valued at $99 with a 6 month subscription.

If you’ve ever considered a subscription at Ancestry.com, now’s your chance to buy the 6 month subscription, and you’ll get a bonus of a free DNA kit valued at $99.

That’s the same value as the Ancestry.com subscription, so you’re essentially getting everything at half price.

My tough luck is that I’m already subscribed so I don’t qualify, because I’ve always wanted to get the DNA kit.

I’m a dedicated Ancestry.com World Subscription user as my research spans numerous continents, countries, counties and cities. No one comes even close to the broad range of geographical areas and document and source types offered by Ancestry.com.

There are a few points in our genealogy where doing a DNA test would be very helpful by confirming some connections for which it has been difficult to find reliable sources – at least this test could confirm that there is a connection, or not. It may also help us solve some family genealogy mysteries.

Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to let my subscription lapse and wait until they offer the free DNA kit again in the future???
