The Family Tree DNA test kit consists of two cotton swabs and two vials designed to be used by one individual. Each vial contains a fluid designed to arrest bacteria growth, so you can scrape your cheek and return your kit in any type of weather (hot or cold). The freshness of your sample will remain intact for months.

Your kit also includes instructions for collecting your DNA sample (available in many languages) and a Release Form. The Release Form is your written consent that allows Family Tree DNA to share your name and email address with your genetic matches.

Return your sample kit in the self-addressed envelope provided, and send it back to Family Tree DNA.
