Petition Closed

Please reconsider and find an alternative to the planned destruction of your YDNA and mtDNA samples.

A number of the samples that you are planning to destroy were collected from or submitted by people who were the last person in their family's line and who are now no longer living.  By doing so, you will be destroying samples that can never be collected again, and that may someday open a world of genealogical data to family history researchers.  We believe that some other private or public organization can be found that would be willing to preserve these samples for future use.
