Just did the test (did not do the medical portion). I have already done the Ancestry.com. The 23andme I believe is a more comprehensive analysis and in addition Family Tree DNA accepts the files from 23andme and Ancestry.com and further breaks them down with their comprehensive data base.
So, without revealing anything personal that you don't want to, did you find out anything interesting from these tests?
Did not get the 23 and me back yet. But with the ancestry. You get to see others that closely match your genes. And since a number of people in my immediate and extended family did it, I can locate your children and cousins...if one don't know who they are one has the opportunity of contacting them thru Ancestry. Of course this is voluntary and "real" identies are not known..unless that other person or you want to divulge it. I was actually able to confirm my family histroy from the time they came over in 1752.
Also Mayflower is getting on board to confirm if people are actually decendents of the Mayflower. My wife has done the test and is a member of Mayflower Society so that will be of interest to us.
I've had interest in this lately. May check it out.
My Wife is a descendant of John Alden, and the family home (a little Cape in Hanover, MA) is still IN the family. I think it was built early 1800's or even earlier. The ceilings are LOW and the kitchen has a wood fireplace with the cast iron arm with a pot hanger and beehive ovens on the left. There is a well just outside one window with a bucket on a rope.
I just found out that s ome twit girl, Steve Mnuchin's wife, Louise family owns my ancestor's Castle in Scotland! We "M" are better than that. I'd like to toss her like a caber into the moat!
In any event Id like to learn more and this DNA thing is interesting but I don't want to get ripped off.
