IN THE NEWS
FRANK SLAVIN, PUGLIST
Welcome to the Slaven Genealogy Exchange! Our purpose is to be a central location to collect and exchange information for Slaven, Slevin, Slavin, Slavey, and other surname variations. As a registered one-name study, the scope of this exchange is world wide. We hope there's something here for the beginning genealogist, the old hand, and the merely curious!
Autosomal DNA Testing.
First, new lower pricing on the "Family Finder" (autosomal) DNA test at FamilyTreeDNA-- now just $79, after being priced at $99 for the past several years. This is apparently a new standard price and not a sale. The comparable "AncestryDNA" test at Ancestry is still $99, but I've got a discount code for $20 off. Just email me if you want to take advantage of the Ancestry discount. If FTDNA stays at $79 with their test, I would expect that Ancestry will ultimately lower their test's price as well. (You can also order the FamilyFinder and Y-DNA test combo at FTDNA, and ordering it through the Slaven DNA Project will get you a cheaper combo price.)
Second, after kicking the idea around all summer, we're launching the "Slaven Cousins DNA Registry," an autosomal DNA test registry, similar to the existing Slaven DNA Project. You can find an information page about the testing and the registry. The Slaven Cousins DNA Registry at the moment has just my information, so all you folks that have taken the Family Finder, AncestryDNA, or 23andMe DNA test, send me your information!
Thanks to Joellen Brown for transcribing some news items and obituaries, and sharing them with the website. We always welcome such contributions! For privacy concerns, we shy away from obituaries less than 60 years old, but otherwise are open to most anything. Thanks again, Joellen!
