    Recommend me one of those DNA Heritage Tests

    So I did one of these about 5 years ago (DNATribes).

    Now I have other family members who are curious about doing it and were wondering about what options are out there. Surely there are other services available, but who is the best?

    I should throw in there that a family member is also a medical geneticist... so she will be strongly critiquing any service and wants something with lots of test groups, etc.

    Thoughts?

    I went with 23andme for my genetic test (https://www.23andme.com). That will give you your paternal, maternal, and autosomal dna in one test, and an addition you will receive an ancestry painting percentage of how European/African/Asian you are, global similarity, relative finder (which finds people who have done the test and have similar results, which they use to determine a family relationship) and so much more. The test itself is 99 bucks, plus shipping (abt. 15.00), and personal genome service (9/month for 12 months), so about 222.00 total. I think it's quite a deal, I'd recommend going with that.
