Well, I made one mistake : the offer doesn't cover FGS and this is precisely the "upgrade" I was looking for. I can't know about other upgrades on my personal pages since I did most of them. So, my post was an opportunity to remember about the FTDNA offer and may be suggest a similar offer for mitochondrial DNA ...
