Our Hound has put on a halo to become The DNA Hound™ and to announce The DNA Angel Project™.
The project is to allow the genealogy community the opportunity to pursue their genetic genealogy. We do that by offering free DNA kits, books, quick guides, DNA consultations, or DNA courses by way of a monthly draw. All you have to do is follow our blog, where you will be notified of the dates on draws.
What is The DNA Angel Project™?
The DNA Angel Project™ is the creation of Ellen Thompson-Jennings, Family History Hound, and Shop the Hound owner. The goal is to give the genealogy community the opportunity to pursue their genetic genealogy by offering free DNA material through draws that will take place every month. Draws will include DNA kits, DNA books, DNA quick guides, DNA consultations, or DNA courses.
How is the program funded?
Who can enter?
If you live in Canada or the U.S. and are eligible by law to enter, you can enter. When entering, you will be sent a confirmation email to the email you provided. Please be sure to confirm your entry, as only a confirmed entry will be eligible to win. This prevents stolen emails from being used. Anyone found to be using stolen emails to increase their odds for the contest will be removed.
How do I know there’s a draw?
All you have to do is join the Hound on the Hunt Blog, and we’ll let you know when the next draw will take place.
If I win a DNA kit, what kind of kit will I receive?
If you are a recipient of a DNA kit from The DNA Angel Project™, you will receive a DNA kit that will be yours to activate. DNA kits will be (in most cases) purchased by Shop the Hound from the following companies; Ancestry DNA, MyHeritage, Family Tree DNA, or 23andMe, and DNA kit will be clearly identified in the draw.
What else could I receive?
When we aren’t giving away DNA kits, we will give away DNA books, DNA guides, DNA consultations, or DNA courses.
How can I participate?
All you have to do is sign up for the Hound on the Hunt blog newsletter, and you will be notified of our next draw.
