Texas State Genealogical Society DNA Project

The Texas State Genealogical Society DNA Project is a partnership with Family Tree DNA that allows project members to order tests at a discounted price (unless a sale price is being offered). Family Tree DNA donates a portion of the test costs back to TxSGS where it is used for record preservation and other society missions and goals. The project also allows project members to become part of specialized sub-projects, such as the Early Texans DNA Project.
