Free DNA tests are sometimes available to encourage participation in surname projects. Offers are usually restricted to Y-DNA tests with sponsorship being provided by the relevant surname project. Some projects will underwrite the entire cost of a DNA test. Other projects will contribute towards the cost of a test or pay for tests for a limited number of markers. In order to qualify for the offer it is usually necessary to supply a list of your paternal line ancestors for at least three or more generations. A list of currently available sponsorship offers from ISOGG project administrators is given below.

A list of projects offering Free DNA tests will be used at all Genealogical Conferences (where ISOGG volunteers are in attendance) to encourage and locate participants.

Note that for tests ordered through Family Tree DNA when a third party pays for a test, the person testing first has to agree to the initial test and then to any upgrades to the test. The person who paid also has rights to the results, just not to the DNA. If the tester doesn't want the person or group to have access to the results any more, then that person has to reimburse the entire cost of the test and any upgrades before the person or group is denied access.

See the FTDNA FAQ I agreed to a DNA test and someone else paid for the test...

[email protected]


Free Y-DNA tests to Y-37 are available for any male with this surname if he is resident in the UK.

http://www.familytreedna.com/public/Riddle/

Although the Riddle/Riddell/Ruddle Project is essentially a Surname Y-DNA project, it is both global and welcoming of any man with Y-DNA matches to those in the project, or bearing such a surname. It is only by comparison that we will learn from these connections.

Then, of course comes the task of connection between the DNA matches with those records and paper trails uncovered by our genealogical and Family History research. After all, it is wonderful to find closely matching DNA (whether via Y-STRs or via Autosomal DNA - Family Finder), but it is another thing to actually put a name to that common ancestor.
