Got my reports back. An amazing amount of information. They test for 10's of thousands of 'markers' on your 23 chromosomes which you can download as raw data. They make available summaries and tutorials of the data.

They use both Maternal and Paternal Haplogroups to trace when this group was first identified. For instance on the maternal side I am U5b1 which can be traced to a single woman who lived in Europe 15,500 years ago. On the paternal side I am I-M253 which can be traced back to a group of men who lived in Europe 30,000 years ago.

They have identified 2872 markers from Neanderthals who lived in Europe from 200,000 to 40,000 years ago. I have 292 of those markers which means I have more markers than 72% of people who have been tested. Total contribution in me is 3 to 4 percent..lol.

I can also look up a total of over 1400 people who are my "cousins". However THEY must grant permission.

Very happy with the information as I have read a lot lately about paleoanthropology. And they have extracted DNA from pre-homosapiens back to as many hundreds of thousands of years ago. Pretty exciting times. Sent for a kit for the wife.

Do they tell you about health markers such as a gene for altizheimers? (As an example).

Yes..if you pay for it. The basic service is $100 the complete package including health markers is another $100. You can pay the extra money later and get that portion as they do the complete testing whether you order the health markers or not.

At the age of 71 I could care less for that portion.

Yes they do. But not that specific one. I did 23and me over Christmas and every few weeks I look and see if they update new tests. I have a ' cousin' with a 25% match who never replied to my message lol

No they probably just tell the government and insurance companies about that.

Your health is a bit more involved than that report. Life would be a bit more simple if such things were true.

promethease.com is a good resource for that 23andMe data. For $5, they will take your data and provide far more information about one's specific gene data than one can digest! Very, very interesting stuff. One caveat, they only provide a report for 45 days. You must download and save their report. Amazingly, it's too big for a typical browser to handle, so they categorize it by magnitude.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

There was a thread about someone who got the same report on this forum about 6 months or so ago. One poster suggested he wasn't interested at all learning about "his heritage". Another poster suggested that this information is more important than the fairly recent change in Pennzoil Labels (that was like 6 pages long).

It was great!

It would be interesting if you could send in another sample with a different name and address. See if you get the same repeatable result.

very much so, I remember seeing videos where they sent in samples from Identical s (twins, triplets) with fake names and different addresses of course, and some were similar, some QUITE different.

I wish i could find those again...

Of course none of those videos are documented. The reason I know the testing is reliable is on ancestry.com. the test identified all my wife's siblings, nieces and nephews and their's identified her. Ancestry had no knowledge of this ahead of time. I was also able to confirm 2 cousins and a number of 3/5/6 cousins that fit into my genealogy line.

Of course who am I to argue the credentials of these internet videos. And of course you can't find them. smirk

No, they're still out there, you just have to search for it. The accuracy of the test is pretty high, it's the interpretation that may be suspect as the confidence level may vary.

I want to do one of these but the information that they have on you that can be shared with insurance companies etc. is what is stopping me.
