FamilyTreeDNA (FTDNA) consistently holds timely sales on their large battery of  DNA tests for genealogical purposes. If you’re considering taking one of the many different ancestral tests, now is the time if you’d like verification of a relationship on your family tree.

Older relatives are the best candidates because they’re a generation closer to the progenitor. For some reason persuading older people can sometimes be difficult for a variety of reasons especially since the  “now” time is important before the opportunity is lost.

I’ve heard from several people that FTDNA is very good with privacy issues. For example, your test results aren’t posted—only matches and estimated ancestral distance—and it’s up to each individual to contact a match, or not.
