DEALS

MyHeritage is giving you free advanced DNA tools when you upload your DNA (which is free). They are also offering 50% off their complete subscription plan and DNA kits are on sale.

FamilyTreeDNA is offering a lot of discounts on their various DNA tests.  They also allow you to upload your DNA for free.

American Ancestors – Society with a number of early American records – $25 off.

Geni – world family tree with sources – half off.

National Genealogical Society – very worthwhile membership – $10 off membership.

INNOVATORS

My favorite new innovator – TrackUBack.com – REALLY cool tree visualization, added historical facts and wonderful maps (and map layering capabilities) for your ancestors – Free Version or $63 a year for all the bells and whistles.

My second favorite new innovator – TheGenealogist.co.uk – Cool map capabilities with layering historical maps. They appear to be also a good resource for records in the United Kingdom, but I haven’t checked that out yet. Discount being offered for Diamond Subscription.
