"Mystery Rewards" at Family Tree DNA

FTDNA's holiday sale this year has a new feature: mystery gifts. They announce a mystery reward every week during the sale period (until December 31st) that applies on top of the sale price for a given test. Roberta Estes, author of the "must read" blog for all genealogists, is collecting unused rewards and making them available to all.

If you have never had a DNA test, or have been waiting for a good opportunity to upgrade and expand your genealogical knowledge, take advantage of this really great sale to learn more about your family history by matching your DNA to others.
