I just learned the www.familytreedna.com has a December sale on at least some of their test kits when purchased through one of the projects (you can generally fit yourself into one of the posted projects. There is a Mexican Surname Project and lots of specific surname and geographic projects.) The Y-DNA37w/ mtDNAPlus kit is $199 (I paid over $300), and the Y-67DNAw/mtDNAPlus kit is $308. I don't know what the latter one was before, but that represents a good savings. I only wish I had known about their apparently traditional December-only sales.
I have been very satisfied with the results and the availability of knowledgeable people to answer questions. So far my results indicate a European haplogroup for my Ruiz line (R1b1b2a1a), and 3 Native American lines (Q and mtdna haplogroups B and C).
So if you have thought about having it done, you may want to take advantage of the sale. (Who knew they would have a "sale"?)

Before you take advantage of the "sale" mentioned in the message below, I
suggest you look into getting your DNA analyzed by other labs for a more
reasonable cost.
I paid $ 129 for a 37 marker Y-DNA analysis from GeneTree, it could be $149
by now, but that is still a bargain compared with other labs.

I belong to Haplogroup E--M96, Subgroup : E1b1b1-M35. It is the third most
frequent haplogroup in Europe.

I really recommend dna testing for anyone that is serious.

Casillas- R1b Celtic
Alvarez = I1a Viking/nordic
Ramirez= J2f1 Adriatic

Also native maternal D

One pitfall not fall into is for those of you that get a J with hits in the Jewish groups, the percentage chance of you being Jewish with a cohen modal group is very very low. Check Wikipedia for an incredible explanation to the percentage changes. So don't trade in those sombreros for a yamaca! Most likely you are a true Latino of Roman or Medittereanena descent.

My Romero's are J2b1 from Tepatitlan de Morelos, Jalisco. No matches
yet. It will interesting to see if our line can be traced back to
either Greece, Iran, or the Converso's of Spain. I haven't
researched prior to 1820 in Tepatitlan yet. It's slow going when you
don't read or speak Spanish.
