“Meaningful. Unexpected. Pollen-free.”

That’s quite a sales pitch, AncestryDNA. Here’s a better one: Through Mother’s Day, those DNA kits are over 40% off.

Some of the best gifts I ever gave my parents were two AncestryDNA kits (that and gift baskets). These are the best-selling consumer DNA kits in the world, and part of the world’s largest consumer DNA network. They can trace your roots back to over 500 different global regions, discover migration paths and present the info with an interactive timeline, geographic details about your history and a pie chart fully detailing your ethnicity.

Plus, it’s very likely to offer you some surprises about your family history. 

To use, all you need to give is a saliva sample. Send your spit kit back, and you’ll know more than you ever wanted to about your genealogy about 6-8 weeks later.

(Side note: You may also want to upload your results to GEDmatch to get further genetic analysis. Also, you might want to read this enlightening Amazon review that explains what “ethnicity” really means, why any Native American heritage may not show up, and why the test might not be good for East Asians.)

The kits are currently $59-$69 and the sale runs through May 9th (which is, yes, Mother’s Day).
