Free DNA Tests


It is possible to get a free DNA test whether or not you are able to make it to Back to Our Past. These tests are sponsored by Project Administrators who run specific projects at FTDNA (FamilyTreeDNA). Most of them are members of ISOGG (International Society of Genetic Genealogy). 

Have a look below to see if your surname is on the list. If it is, you can either come to the FTDNA stand at Back to Our Past and see if you qualify for the free test, or else you could contact the relevant Project Administrator privately to make enquiries and (if you qualify) they will arrange for the test to be sent to you in the post.

Free DNA Tests at Back to Our Past

The testing is carried out by FTDNA (FamilyTreeDNA) who are sponsoring the DNA Lectures at Back to Our Past and who have a stand at the event where you can have your DNA taken by a simple mouth swab. ISOGG volunteers will be on hand to offer advice on the various DNA tests available, answer any questions you have, and help you decide which test is most suitable to address your own particular situation. Then there is a simple form to fill out with your name, email address, contact details, and payment information. The swabbing takes two minutes - one minute for your left cheek, and one minute for your right cheek - and then you're done.

The sample will be shipped off to the lab and you will be sent an email as soon as it arrives there. You will also be emailed a password which you will use (together with your kit number) to access your results on your own personal webpage, provided by FTDNA. Your results will be posted here in about 6-10 weeks and again, you will receive an email when they have been posted. In the meantime you can explore the FTDNA Learning Centre and fill out your ancestry details on your personal webpage.


Free DNA Tests via Project Administrators directly

Certain Project Admins are willing to consider fully or partially sponsored DNA tests for people with specific surnames. These are detailed in the table on the ISOGG Free DNA Tests webpage and only partially reproduced below. These free DNA tests are offered directly via the Project Admins or at genealogy events, like Back to Our Past, or Who Do You Think You Are, or Family History Shows.

Always check the ISOGG webpage for the most up-to-date list of surnames and the eligibility criteria. Usually this means that you will have to provide them with a copy of your family tree, or at least your direct male line, or a link to your online tree - the requirements vary from Admin to Admin. Anyone wishing to avail of the free sponsored DNA testing can check the eligibility criteria and make enquiries directly to the Admins concerned by consulting the table on the ISOGG website.  If the Admin judges you to be a suitable candidate, they will usually arrange for a test kit to be sent to you in the post. Then all you have to do is swab your cheek, stick it in the post in the envelope provided, and 6-10 weeks later you'll get your results.

Would you like to sponsor a test for someone else?

If you are a Project Administrator and would like to have your surname of interest added to the list, please leave a comment below with the specific details or email me directly by clicking here and I will add it to the list. Please use the same format as that on the ISOGG webpage or simply cut and paste from the fictional GLEESON example below:

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

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.

  4. From Jeanie Atkins:
    I run the BREWERTON DNA project at FTDNA. The variant is BRUERTON.
    I offer free Y-37 to any BRUERTON and to any BREWERTON whose line has less than 2 testees.
    If a Brewerton applied and I did not know his line then I would test him.
    I run a one-name study and know the family history of most Brewerton's in the UK but the USA is not as well researched due to lack of records on line.
    There are Irish families with both names so happy to be on the Irish site as well as the main site.

  15. We would be prepared to sponsor any Swan(n) with documented ancestry to Ireland before the 1901 Census. This would be for a 37 marker DNA test. Details of the Swan(n) DNA Project are on the FTDNA website. There are approximately 900 individuals with these surnames in the 1901 Census of Ireland.

    We would also sponsor any Picton who appeared, but based on the surname's origins this would be unlikely.

You could contact the Project Administrators for further information. Hope this helps.

    2. Hello Dennis. Jusgt found your message, which has been up for a long time. I have probably the oldest documented Wilson ancestral line, and can trace my ancestor to the 15th century, before that records are scance but oral testimony is proven by the location. It would be helpful if you knew were your Wilson ancestor originated.

  35. If anyone wants to sponsor me, I'll give a sample of Wilson dna. My line takes is Scottish ancestry, but it is claimed that many Irish Wilson's are younger branches of my line. This came about after the Bishop Wars, when many Wilson's fled SW Scotland. I am a Scots armiger, with a tree back to the an ancestor living on the Nith, Ayrshire in the 15th century. Before that, it is in oral testimony, and the line is Wilson of Croglin. My dna would be the line to Croglin, if anyone is interested, and would be of interest to Scots, Irish and Americans alike.

  36. If there is any Halloran with County Mayo roots and can provide their ancestry back to a great grandfather and/or before 1850, I will sponsor their Y-37 DNA test. I have a Halloran surname project here. https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/halloran/about/background

  37. Hi, I am looking for or wish to start a Winston family DNA project. Started in Wales and moved around UK and Wales and at some point came to Ireland. there is I believe two original families in Ireland but unsure as to which line they belong to in Wales. Associated families may be De Laci/y Fitzgeralds Nugents here. I am confused about some members requesting 12 marker volunteers. I want to pay for the eldest member of the known Winston family in the west of Ireland,he is 94, for a 37 marker test. Also I know of one Winston test in UK. rEGARDS
