Home DNA kits
You may be convinced that you're related to Benjamin Franklin, but your genealogist friends scoff, insisting that you just don't have the proper documentation. You need irrefutable physical evidence, but it's going to be hard to find that two centuries later.

If only they'd had DNA Home Collection and Storage Kits in colonial times! The kits, manufactured by DNA Identification Systems, let you collect a sample of your DNA on a scientifically engineered storage card and stash it in any cool, dry place — such as a file box where you keep photos, letters and other heirlooms. Your DNA sample can prove lineage and help your descendants trace genetic diseases.

Since you do it yourself, it's confidential and inexpensive; kits are $29.95 each. For details, contact DNA Identification Systems, Box 130159, Birmingham, AL 35213, (205) 970-5501, <>.
