What do you get when you combine mouth wash, genealogy, and science together in one package?
The GeneTree DNA Test Kit*
Are you saying, “Huh?” right about now? Well stick with me. When the folks at GeneTree approached me with this giveaway, my response was about the same. I mean, let’s face it–my experience with DNA would be limited to an evening with CSI Miami and Horatio Caine…hmmm…not a bad thought, but not where we’re headed.
With the use of a simple mouthwash solution GeneTree will help you discover branches of your ancestry that you may never have know existed. GeneTree offers enhanced genealogical research through scientific study of DNA. Once the kit results are submitted, Genetree will hook you up with a free, password protected, secure social networking site that specializes in connecting people through their common DNA ancestors. As part of their free service you can also upload your family tree, share photos or videos, connect with your DNA matches to find insights to your past, and have access to many educational and genealogical links. They also offer DNA and genealogy consultations to help with your research brick walls.
This is really taking Family History research to a new–and for me–cosmic level. I personally think their tag line should be “To your ancestry…and beyond.”
Oh, that was goood.
