Couch Family Finder members 12 17 2014
First the good news -- DNA testing is easy and painless. The Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) company will mail you a test kit. You simply swab the inside of your mouth with a couple of big Q-tips, put them in some nice little plastic tubes and mail them back to the company. Testing is done at the University of Arizona and is state-of-the-art.
Now the bad news -- DNA testing is not free. We strongly encourage participants to purchase either the 25-marker or 37-marker test. The cost plus shipping, paid to the Family Tree DNA Company. (Price subject to change.) As the administrators, we have no financial interest in the project; we do not receive commissions, "comps," expenses, or any other form of compensation or remuneration from the Family Tree DNA Company.
If you want to participate but money is a concern, please contact the project administrator. Sometimes we can help find researchers in your family line who will chip in for a test. We also have a General Fund with a little money left in it.
The Family Finder is beginning to have lots of new members in it. And this would be a good place to let others know what you are finding.
