Ancestry & DNA: Free DNA Kit!

Ancestry.com has introduced a special offer to help celebrate the start of the new season of *Who Do You Think You Are? 

When you purchase a 6 month subscription, you will also receive a free DNA kit!


If you’ve been trying to decide between taking the test and buying a membership, this is the perfect chance since you will save 50%. The free test is only good when you purchase a US Discovery membership, plus it states you need to be a new customer.

*New episodes of Who Do You Think You Are? air Wednesday’s on TLC. Check your local listings for exact times.

Gallery update – June 15th

I’m not sure of the exact number, but I’ve recently uploaded a lot of photos to the “family photos” and “wedding photos” albums in the gallery.

I also have 4 photos with people I cannot identify (except for 1 person in 1 of those photos), so I’ve created a new album titled “who are you” to help me identify them. Please take a look and if you know who they are, contact me.

I have also added a new file to the History section of the site – the Events file. It lists everyone added to the family tree (living or dead) and (if it’s relevant to them and known) their birth, marriage and death date.

As a special treat, House Party has provided me (and all the other hosts) a coupon for 10% off a DNA kit! So if you’ve been thinking of taking the test, now is a great time to order one.

Using this link, you can order a test for $89 for Ancestry.com’s Father’s Day sale. After using the code that House Party has provided (DNAHOUSEPARTY), you’ll get an additional 10% (or $8.90) knocked off. Shipping and tax will bring your total to $90.87. However, if you don’t use the House Party coupon your total would be $99.77. And if you didn’t use either discount your total would be around $110. So now is a really great time to buy the DNA kit. Just remember to order by June 10th to get the Father’s Day sale price. The House Party discount is valid until July 31st.

*House Party has provided me with this party pack and coupon code for free. I am not being compensated to write about this pack, about AncestryDNA or about Ancestry.com.
