FREE E-books on DNA and Saving Money $$$
What is the old saying, “A Day Late and a Dollar Short?” I was not able to post my usual Friday Free Download here at Abundant Genealogy due to all the Black Friday sales on DNA test kits and genealogy products. I was awake for close to 40 hours searching for and posting deals to save my fellow genealogists money on a variety of items.
Now that the rush is over, I am a day late, but I won’t need that dollar . . . this week’s Friday Free Download is a free e-book two-fer: 23 Best Tips for DNA Testing and Family History by Mary Eberle and The 15 Habits of Highly Frugal Genealogists by Thomas MacEntee.
23 Best Tips for DNA Testing and Family History
I had the privilege of working with genetic genealogy expert Mary Eberle, JD in producing her e-book 23 Best Tips for DNA Testing and Family History. “This guide answers many DNA-related questions and more. The various tips were selected after listening to hundreds of people’s questions during live workshops and webinars. The 23 tips for DNA testing are split into sections on autosomal DNA, X-DNA, Y-DNA, mitochondrial DNA, and additional tips.” As editor, I learned so much from the various tips and I continue to be amazed at how much DNA can do to further your genealogy research!
Right now through Sunday, November 25th, 23 Best Tips for DNA Testing and Family History is available for FREE! Click HERE.
The 15 Habits of Highly Frugal Genealogists
The 15 Habits of Highly Frugal Genealogists offers an amazing array of money saving tips when using genealogy and family history resources! You’ll find ways to save money by selling your old genealogy books back to Amazon (they’ll buy them even if you bought them somewhere else!) as well how to “trick” vendors into giving you a special discount for online purchases.
Why is this FREE? What’s the Catch?
There really isn’t a catch. I give away a lot of free content every year because I want fellow genealogists and family historians to have access to the best tools and information for their research. I also do this because I’m hoping you might be interested in my other content and websites where I do make money such as Genealogy Bargains:
Even if you never use one of my links for a purchase, I’m happy knowing that you are able to get educational content that you can put into action for your family history research!
