I did this, just had my results through. Interesting!
Paying companies to have your DNA details sent out into the wild.... smdh.
Other test are much more informative live 23 + 1 than ancestry crap

Don't worry they won't clone you or anything like that!
Aren't they the ones that got caught lying?
I heard the actual cost of the DNA test to the company is around £500 - £1000, Peoples DNA is supposedly worth up to £50,000 to drug / research companies, worth checking if you have your DNA tested - do you give consent for your data to be sold on ?

There's a startup company in America who's purpose is to manage peoples DNA so people can rent their DNA profile to interested parties and both make money from it !!
Waste of money. What are you going to do with the information once you get it?

and then do... what?


Start a family tree? visit the country they have links to? or they are just interested in their genealogy? what does it matter to you what people want to do with the information they get anyway?
I did the 23andme. I'm not an immigrant. Almost 100% British
I think you can get this Ancestry test for just £59 on Amazon without have to pay the postage:
amazon.co.uk/Anc…W0/

I've had myself tested and it told me I was mostly Scots, Irish and Scandanvian. It has allowed me to confirm some lines on my family tree - some were correct, one looks like it might not be. I've bought a test for my parents to try and break down some of the brick walls in my tree (mostly where the father is unknown).

That is one of the downsides of this site, there are some participants who go out of their way to knock people's efforts to help others.
It's DNA day apparently and other companies have also got offers on.
23andme has 30% off so £55 for ancestry service.
Living DNA is £79.20 from £120.
I don't know the subtleties between them.

Something in the a newspaper the other month compared the same persons DNA through a few different testing companies, the results varied quite widely, which made me lose interest in doing one of these tests. I know I'm at least 50% moron anyway.
