Ordering DNA Kits for the Project

The Tickle / Tickell DNA project is run in conjunction with the Guild of One-Name Studies and Family Tree DNA (FTDNA).

The Guild have FTDNA test kits available at discounted prices. You’ll find links below to Guild pages which will give you the current price and more information about each kit. You can buy your kit either through the Guild or directly from FTDNA. (You’ll find a link for FTDNA site on the pages as well so you can compare their prices). There are three things to consider:

  • FTDNA sometimes have sales on particular kits. The exchange rate may make it better to buy directly from FTDNA; at other times the Guild will be cheaper.
  • You can pay the Guild in any of six currencies – Pounds sterling, US dollars, Canadian dollars, Euro, Australian dollars, and New Zealand dollars. I believe FTDNA only accepts USD payments; the conversion rate will be decided by your card issuer or Paypal.
  • Check postage and delivery. Postage is not included in the Guild price, although it is inexpensive as they are very light, but it is included in the FTDNA price. Kits from the Guild are despatched from the UK, whereas kits from FTDNA are despatched from the US. You’ll be able to see the postage cost before you pay, if you order from the Guild.

Look at both options before you buy to ensure you are getting the best deal. Please read the information below these links before if ordering from the Guild.

The price does not include postage but you can see how much this will be before you make your payment.

I do hope you will join the Tickle / Tickell DNA project. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or need any help.
