"Our "mtDNA" test used for both males and females, and our "Y-DNA" designed to match males (often with the same or similar surnames) are priced, respectivelly at $129 and $159. We also offer a "Y-DNA12+mtDNA" which combines both tests above (and is for males who want to test and database both their mothers' and fathers' lineage). The Y-DNA12+mtDNA is $229. We also offer the worlds' only "Cohanim" test, which will identify those people who share this set of markers with the family of the Biblical character Aaron.

Our newest tests Y-DNA37 ($289) and mtDNAPlus ($189) are designed to tighten the time to the MRCA by offering the greatest number of markers tested of any genealogical product on the market.
Our Y-DNA and mtDNA can also verify Native American ancestry for either the male or female side. They are designed to tell you from which immigration to the new world your male or female family progenitor arrived. To successfully take this test your lines of descent must be female to female to female (or male to male to male) all the way back to the person who was 100% of Native Ancestry. Please see ask about this test.
