|Have you seen our new ELDER DNA research project?
I have included both names of ELDER and ELDERS in the project,
as I think they both may have originated with the
ELDER family name in Scotland. We now have almost
50 members, with many matches, especially with old Scotland.
INSTRUCTIONS and COST OF Y-DNA kit for
males with any ELDER/ELDERS surname.
(Same cost of $99 for "mouth swab" mailing kit
and lab analysis as the new National Geographic DNA project)
1.Use the JOIN request entry on the
top left side of our ELDER DNA webpage, which
connects to our choice of
Houston lab company data of FamilyTreeDNA.
See our ELDER/ELDERS webpage with links and matching
ancestors' names to date, posted here:
2. Look further down the JOIN page--
Choose "I want to purchase a test" entry.
3. That page gives the ELDER study summary at the top, and has
the kit order form, with prices at the bottom.
I recommend the first $99 Y-DNA kit (12 markers).
We have seen several DNA matches
just fine with the first 12 markers.
Some of us have added more markers from the same sample later.
4. Form asks for your full name, address, phone and e-mail.
Choose to ask them to send an invoice with the kit,
or add immediate credit card info there.
Looking forward to more DNA matches!
Let me know if you have more questions.
