Looking back through the prices on slickdeals, it looks like this is the price you want to purchase at. Also, anyone who has previously purchased and looked at your results on the ancestry website. I just went and looked at mine again and they have updated some of the ethnicity data.

If you end up ordering this test, make sure you delete your DNA data after you're done so they can't sell it or use it for other nefarious purposes: https://www.consumerreports.org/h...her-sites/

"so they can't sell it or use it for other nefarious purposes".

Like what? Making a dog clone of you? [roflol]

The article is full of FUD. It's a shame that people don't have to qualify to be a writer with an IQ test.

If you're looking to explore your full family tree, here's my suggestion:
1. Buy an AncestryDNA test for as many people in your family as you can. More specifically, you want as much of the oldest generation as possible. For genealogy purposes, you don't need any descendants of a couple to test if you are able to have both people in a couple tested. However, if you only have one person in a couple, then any descendants will add information so test them too.
a. The reason to start with AncestryDNA is that it has the largest database of testers, and therefore the most genetic information available. Unfortunately, it lacks a critical tool called a chromosome browser but I will show you how to make up for that later.
b. If you are mostly interested in just your maternal or paternal side, then it's better to get testers from that side's oldest generations than doing your own test. For example, your father's parents, your father, and his brother and sister would provide more information than you on the origins and ethnicity of your father's side.
2. Buy a 23andMe test for the same people if you can afford it. 23andMe has the second largest database and there is genetic information that is only available by taking their test.
3. After you get your test results, then upload them FREE to: GEDmatch.com, MyHeritage.com, and FamilyTreeDNA.com
a. These other websites allow free uploads because they have smaller databases and want to build up their data. If these ever somehow become competitive in size to the largest sites, they might stop allowing free uploads. So do this asap after you get your results!

Check out the post above your own. That seems to be the general consensus.

Can you upload Ancestry to to: GEDmatch.com, MyHeritage.com, and FamilyTreeDNA.com or only 23 and Me?

I think pretty much 100% of dna sites that accept raw dna uploads accept ancestry and 23andme. That's not true of the rest.

If you are looking for family, you should buy both. Some people will be on one service, some will be on the other.

Very good locating relatives using DNA story here:
==========
DNA Upload to MyHeritage Reveals Father and 3 Half-Sisters
December 2, 2019

Washington state resident Rae Ellyn Robinson grew up with her biological mother but never knew her biological father. Her mom never gave her any concrete information to go on. Rae searched for her paternal family for 31 years. After trying many DNA testing services, it was a DNA upload to MyHeritage that cracked the case for her and her family.

Watch her touching story here:
