I would not participate because you are paying for the results and the test, but the results are shared with other entities. I cannot state the exact details, but it seems wrong to me. The only way I would recommend such a thing is if you are unsure of your ancestry. Truthfully on the other hand, most people are under false impressions about their ancestry because you don't know how many false fathers there have been along the way. Someone I knew said both their grandmothers said their grandfathers weren't really their grandfathers. Our ancestors really must have liked sex enough to sneak their DNA to be fostered by someone else.

....................


it's quite amusing when racists take the DNA test and find out they have African DNA
we all have African DNA for reasons known about by biologists and anthropologists and other scientists for many years
but DNA tests won't always show it because they are only able to find genetic mutations that are more recent than 100,000 years ago
and for many their African heritage goes back further and sometimes much further than 100,000 years

I filled out some info at ancestry dot com, (free) and other members there seem to like to research and add your relatives just for fun. I get new updates on and off of other people Iím related to. But I did little, but my initial family.

I have a 23 and me kit sitting on my desk. Need to do that.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

I found out that Iím 0% Native American, which I believed all my life. My grandfather showed me a picture of his grandmother, and she looked like she could have been 100%, though he said she was half.

I also found out that my sister is my half sister. She met her dad after 45 years. Her DNA showed a match to his nephew and she was able to contact her newly found cousin through Ancestry.
I heart Crystal Math.

Seems to me that still waters should be left unmolested and allowed to run deep.

I imagine there is a good story there, if it came by surprise. Care to share?

She must have been heart broken. It's very sad for everyone. Like I said before, it's common more than we think. A man can barely hide it but a woman can in most cases when races are similar to expectation.

My wife recently found an uncle that no one in the family knew about. It turns out her Grandparents gave their first baby up for adoption when they were teenagers.

I can't imagine most of these circumstances turn out all that well.

All the ads on TV for this ancestry crap have really happy endings. Why, you'll find out granddaddy what's a civil rights hero and great granddaddy was the only barber for 50 miles in any direction. For every great ending there's one that ain't so great.
