Relative Match...pricing #dna
Harold Rhode <hrhode@...>
How much does a male RELATIVE MATCH DNA testing cost.
We are trying to see if two families who lived within 2 kilometers of each
other on small farms in northern Lithuania in the 1780s' and are both
Kohanim - are related to each other.
Who do we do? How do we order this test.
in the same area in 1787
Similar to the email I answered earlier this week, your question, about
purchasing something >from our company, is one that normally I would take
this private. However you have asked a question that may be on the minds of
many people I will explain something commercial rather then technical.
In regards to your question, to match up 2 males who you think are related
on the Male side, you would order the Y-DNA test which is $219.
If you think the connection of these two families was on a female side you
would order the mtDNA test at $219.
If you wanted to try both sides, because you think they are related but
don't know where, then the Relative Match, at $279, per person is necessary.
You can order this >from www.jewishgen.org/dna

Does this mean that the test on HIS mtDNA will give the same information,
that I would receive, if I, his sister, were to have my mtDna
A male is able to be tested on both his mtDNA (maternal) and Y (paternal
side). Since women inherit an X >from the father we don't get Y
non-recombinant DNA >from women, only men. In this way a better test
subject, if available, is a brother. The price is also better because we
have the DNA and just have to run it through another single test to obtain
We have extended people who come and test through JewishGen a discount
over the price we charge for this same service offered on our web site
because we are:
a) appreciative to JewishGen for being our first marketing partner and
having the vision that this concept made good sense (and genealogy)
b) Dr. Hammer is keen to enlarge the Jewish portion of the database
because he works extensively with Jewish subjects and more data is

This is exactly correct. Thank you for asking and helping me clarify this
question for the group.
