Sorry for the mouse pointer on my forehead. Didn't realize it was on the video until after I put it all together :/

This test is all bull. I got one about 2 years ago. Got the results, I told everyone my ancestry breakdown, but three months later when I checked my results again, they changed the breakdown into something different. Even the timeline was now changed. I reached out to supposedly 2nd cousin and we found out that we don't share the same relatives. My assumption is that 23 and Me uses 3rd party data about you to fill in holes in the results. Not worth the $100, it's all margin. Don't take the results seriously.

@Luigi Warning well, either that or you missed 2 things: first: the instructions are mentioned in the video. second: who on earth would someone pay ~90 bucks to purposly mess up a test that the person honestly bought to conduct their heritage? Who on earth would pay ~90 bucks and IGNORE all the instructions? Who. Oh, wait: I bet YOU would.

❗️❗️❗️❕❕❕The text below has been translated because I'm French, so the meaning of the text can be weird.❗️❗️❗️❕❕❕ Great video. Really, thank you. I just have a question : I ask myself the question, because I read several articles talking about test reserved for men. Since I am a woman if I get tested, could I have a paternal genetic tree? And so maybe be able to find thanks to the correspondences the unknown father of my grandfather. I would be really delighted if someone answers me. Thank you in advance. Super vidéo. Vraiment merci. J’ai juste une question : Je me pose la question, car j'ai lu plusieurs articles parlant de test réserver aux hommes. Vu que je suis une femme si je me fais tester, est-ce que je pourrais avoir un arbre génétique paternel ? Et donc peut-être pouvoir trouver grâce aux correspondances le père inconnu de mon grand-père. Je serrais vraiment ravis si quelqu’un me répond. Merci d’avance. Cordialement.

Why is 23andMe asking if I am Hispanic and then asks what race am I. Aren’t they supposed to be figuring that out?

This test is all bull. I got one about 2 years ago. Got the results, I told everyone my ancestry breakdown, but three months later when I checked my results again, they changed the breakdown into something different. Even the timeline was now changed. I just felt betrayed by myself for falling into their trap. I told everyone when I got the results and I had to recorect it. I woke up sleeping thinking I was something else, then suddenly I'm not that person. It gets worse, I reached out to a supposedly 2nd cousin and we found out that we don't share the same relatives. My assumption is that 23andMe uses 3rd party data about you to fill in holes in the results. Not worth the $100, it's all margin. And possibly a ploy to sell your DNA and health data to many companies.

UsefulCharts 7 months ago
Siblings only share 50% of the same DNA so although the results would be fairly similar, each child can inherit different DNA from each parent resulting in slightly different ancestry percentages. Identical twins, on the other hand, should have identical results.

Obviously, this is an ad for 23andMe. AncestryDNA DOES allow you to upload your raw data to other sites, so your assertion that they don't is patently untrue. I think people will find that Ancestry's ethnicity estimates are every bit as good as 23andMe's but MyHeritage and FTDNA leave a lot to be desired in that regard.

I love 23andMe, I definitely consider it one of the most ACCURATE and UNIQUE Ancestry/DNA sites because it also offers your HEALTH & Genetic reports which others don't. And it's more inclusive and has a larger pool of people who aren't white.

I believe that one of the women who founded 23andme is married to the founder of Google and the sister of the founder of 23andme is the RUvid founder. Google said they won't share data at the start, but now they sell your data to governments, bidders, etc.

I just finally ordered two of these because Amazon Prime Day, I was going to do it tonight. But I'll take your advice and just do it first thing when I wake up! I'm very much looking forward to the results, because I know I am very very mixed! Sadly makes it kinda hard to confirm things to my self. Since most of my knowledge is more vague. But for the people who do know what to expect, it's always been about that with a few surprises. What I am aware of, to my knowledge I'm: 25% British 25% German 18.75% Italian 18.75% African 12.5% Irish. Likely allot more I'd bet. Also my wife will be doing one as well. It's likely going to be closer to the latest expected time considering when I got mine. I'm sure they sold many kits on Prime Day.

Have you ever used Family Search from the LDS church. THe one thing that really bugs me is that anyone can access your charts and make changes. Someone did to mine and I posted a please do not change this chart post. The Relative Finder is pretty cool though.
