5000 Free DNA Testing Kits from MyHeritage for Qualifying Adoptees is repeating its DNA Quest initiative and offering 5000 free DNA Testing Kits to qualifying adoptees. Here is the explanation from the website:
Participation in this project is open to adoptees seeking to find their biological family members, and to parents and other family members looking for a child they had placed in adoption years ago. Preference will be given to people who are not able to afford genetic testing. Leveraging the power of genetic genealogy opens new doors in the search for relatives, and we believe everyone should be able to access this valuable technology.
Here are some additional details of the offer from a Press Release dated March 1, 2019:
TEL AVIV, Israel & LEHI, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MyHeritage, the leading global service for family history and DNA testing, announced today that it is extending DNA Quest, its pro bono initiative to reunite adoptees with their birth families through at-home DNA testing.
