Ancestry DNA has lowered the price of its 33-marker Y-DNA test to $79 (down from $149).

Results from this test include marker values you can enter into a database to search for relatives and a map showing your haplogroup and other information about your family’s ancient origins. Results don’t include a breakdown of ethnic origins, a type of analysis that has become more controversial of late.
