The August 4, 2019 edition of "Nu? What's New?" the E-sine of Jewish
Genealogy >from Avotaynu includes this news.

It cites an article in "Quartz" dated July 23, 2019. That article has
a link to a "The Wall Street Journal" story of July 22 on the same subject.
Links to these sources are quoted below.

According to the articles, $117.74 of the $199 cost of a 23andMe test
may be deducted as a medical expense by USA taxpayers who itemize
deductions.

"Nu? What's New" is distributed every Sunday. See http://www.avotaynu.com/

or to 23andMe
