I just found out 2 pieces of very good news..
Family Tree DNA has lowered their prices for the XSTR panels to be inline with the Y tests..Panel #1 is now $99
ALSO~! There will be a comparison modality soon most likely accessible at your Personal Page..
Well that's certainly an interesting development, Kathleen, thanks for posting that. Where did you hear about this comparison modality? Is Xmatch being incorporated into the FTDNA website, or is this something entirely different?
