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!
Most of the DNA sales that were on for Valentine's Day have expired, except for AncestryDNA. Their $69 special on their autosomal test is good through Feb. 25. Don't forget, you can usually get the same AncestryDNA sale prices at Amazon.com (WITH FREE 2-DAY SHIPPING if you have a Prime membership). Also, if you're ordering through Ancestry, try the coupon code "FREESHIPDNA" - it's usually invalid during sales but it doesn't hurt to try!
If you received a DNA kit for Christmas and sent it right back, your results are should be back soon, if they haven't already arrived! Please considering sending in your information for the autosomal DNA registry to help your cousins connect with you!
If you have done the AncestryDNA, Family Finder, 23andMe's ancestry test, or other autosomal DNA test, send your information so you can be added to the table. (Hint: this could be very valuable in enabling your Slaven/etc. cousins to find you if you don't have a family tree linked to your results!)
Slaven Y-DNA Project members - if you changed email addresses, please update your email at FamilyTreeDNA (if that's where you tested) and let me know as well. I sent a mass email about autosomal DNA testing and about ten email addresses were bad. If you've forgotten your FTDNA login information, I can probably help with that.
The Slaven (& etc.) DNA Project is ramping up the Autosomal DNA Registry. If you have taken an autosomal DNA test, like the AncestryDNA test at Ancestry (they reportedly sold 2.7 million of them during the Christmas 2017 season!), FamilyFinder at FamilyTreeDNA, the Ancestry test at 23andMe, or the DNA test at MyHeritage, please consider sharing your information with the Registry. The idea is that your unknown cousins may be considering taking a test, and if they find your entry here it could encourage them to test, and test at the same company! (While cross-company matching can be done by uploading results to GEDmatch, not everyone does so. Keeping checking back, as I'm actively pursuing a few people that I know have tested and are looking for lost cousins!
Also, I'll keep building out the autosomal DNA introduction page with additional links to blog posts and other pages, so keep checking back for new information.
