My wife did this and found some good matches, it was very interesting - …My wife did this and found some good matches, it was very interesting - apparently she's part Viking. I could have guessed.Good price.


She should try a rival kit as well and compare the results. A recent report on the BBC suggested that they are almost complete nonsense!

Alternatively, you could just go out any buy her a hat with horns on.

GDPR worries me with these. It's an American company and you have to wonder who they will sell your info to.

Nor does the kit accurately go figure. Pointless gimmick, most will say you come from Africa/Asia/Continent etc. and its been pointed out by reports (BBC etc.) that its bull. But for a throw away gift for a loved one then I suppose you could buy worse or norse.
The ethnicity is the part that gets media attention and is an area of science that's still bring developed. It's the cousin matching part that's of real value to anyone looking at doing their family tree.
isn't it 49 and then another 10 quid for delivery?
I would just get it from Amazon. 59 quid including delivery and you can get it next day for free

Europeans are protected with DNA testing, because of GDPR. Ancestry is one of the best to test with, they have the financial clout to battle any law enforcement agency trying to access their database. Plus, they are not a medical company, or associated with a pharmaceutical company, like some of the others. MyHeritage is another good testing company.

Don't do it for ethnicity, this changes as companies increase their samples sizes, and actually only represents what you have inherited, most of your ethnicity from 500 years ago is gone from your AtDNA (what this kit tests) through the way your DNA is passed down.

If you are doing this for genealogy, it is fabulous. Just beware of MPE (Misattributed Parental Event), approximately 1 in 5 will find out something in their family that was NOT known, discussed, or expected! (source- I am a professional genetic genealogist)
