I believe there might have been a thread on this in the past? My sister got the 23andMe kit for Christmas from a friend and just got her results back, which seem to align reasonably well with the known family history.

My dad's dad's family is British, my dad's mom's family is British.

My mom's mom's family is Scottish and Irish, my mom's dad's family is German and French.

These are the results:



Anybody else toy around with this? How close did your results align with your family history?

I can think of no better way for Government to get your DNA on record and for you to pay for the testing.

I got to do one for free due to a health condition I have. The ancestry results were as expected although it claimed I was 1% northern European which I find hard to believe. (I'm 100% Asian)

If the government needs your dna sample, they will get it, regardless, so no need to worry about that.

Mine lined up pretty well with known family history as well. It also gave evidence to support an old family legend that we've not been able to verify otherwise. I wouldn't rely on these reports as 100% accurate, but they can be very informative and interesting.

My brother and sister both had theirs done recently and they are very close but not exact. My brother gave me the kit for Christmas and I thought it shouldn't show much of a difference between siblings but I thanked him and will do the test.

Coincidentally, my BIL gave my wife one for Christmas. As both were adopted, their results could be much more interesting.

So just like that, you're going to leave us hanging?

So I was just reading an article on how kids of sperm donors are tracking down their donors with this kind testing. The actual donor doesn't need to submit their DNA but just a close relative and some googling does the rest... Seems hard to believe that lots of people sign something in clear language that allows others to search their DNA profile in detail?
What's included in the paper work for this?

My five year old is adopted. We know quite a bit about his biological mother's side, but not much about his biological father's. We sent his spit sample off about a month ago, so it will be interesting to see the results.
