Teaching your kids about your family history and ancestry is important, but what if you’re unsure about your own family tree? Ancestry DNA kits have grown in popularity over recent years and there’s never been a better time to buy one than this big sale.

Just in time for DNA Day, Ancestry.com is offering a deep discount on its AncestryDNA kits. While the kits usually sell for $99, for a limited time you can get one for just $69.

So what do you get with that kit? You’ll be sent a small test tube to collect your saliva and send it back to a lab for testing. Within six to eight weeks your results will be viewable online. The results include a genealogical map of each of the ethnicities that make up your DNA, as well the approximate percentage of each.

This special sale is only available until Apr. 25, however, so if you’re hoping to learn more about your family history, act fast.
