    You were correct the first time. The sequencing is being done at the University of Arizona.

      "Many new terminal branches will be gained and, according to Bennett Greenspan, this will completely replace the deep clade test currently offered by Family Tree DNA."

      What is the impact of this "complete replacement" on those of us who have taken the DC test already?

        The Deep Clade test was always a "moment in time" test. That is, it was only testing your Y-DNA to the SNPs which were then available (and not offering to test for any SNPs found at some future date).

        With the 12,000 Y-SNPs in the Nat Geno 2.0 test, in many (quite likely the majority of) cases, new downstream SNPs will be discovered. FT-DNA has stated they will try to make available all SNPs discovered by the Nat Geno 2.0 test, but there are some SNPs which for technical reasons are virtually impossible to develop traditional (Sanger type) testing.

          The lucky few will be informed soon.

          Good luck!

            I don't get why they contacted you. I expected that they would only notify those who were actually on the free kit list.

            Or did you ask them directly?

                URLs to get the $30 discount on Geno 2.0

                There seem to be two slightly different URLs to get the $30 discount on Geno 2.0:

                http://shop.nationalgeographic.com/n...code=EM080612G

                http://shop.nationalgeographic.com/n...code=EM082112G

                Overseas customers can also get the discount by clicking on the "Buy the International Kit" hyperlink on either of those pages.

                    Apparently the e-mail that I received was sent out in error, and there is no cut off date at this time for original Genographic participants.

                      Okay, the latest word from NatGeo via the FTDNA office is that, yes, the discount for original participants will expire sometime early Sat a.m.

                        Hello,

                        I've seen names of people who accept 2.0 downloads. Instead of simply sending a download cold, Is there something I should do before hand. My results are at 40% and I want to go ahead as intelligently as I can.

                        R1b1a2, I shared a mutation at CDYa of 37 and came within a genetic distance of 2 compared with another testee on the McClure DNA Project.

                        Indicating common ancestor 8 generations back.

                        When compared to a pedigree of the wife (McClure) of a brother of my 4th great grandmother pointed to John McClure, b. 1665 Northern Ireland (also in the testee’s pedigree.

                        Thanks,
                        Robert McClure

                          There is free shipping today only for kits mailed within the U.S., $10.00 to Canada.
