    Question Have You Done Ethnic DNA Testing?

    Hi everyone,

    It's been a few months since being here. Hope everyone is well.

    I was wondering if anyone has done this or thought of doing this - DNA testing to determine your exact percentages/regions where your ancestors came from? Both my parents are of German ancestry and East Prussian ancestry but I'd love to know the exact regions.

    Just thought I'd throw that out there and see if anyone has had similar ideas....

    I just ordered a test kit.

    My father followed the family tree back to 1380, from what I get there it is pure germanic (a few dutch and a few swiss far back). So I don't expect surprises but one never knows.

    Good luck! I want to have a DNA test done one day when I have the money.

    OP, that sounds like a good idea. I think it should be possible, not entirely sure though.

    I do not know if they can really pinpoint an exact spot. I had mine done and sent my raw data to someone and they basically just told me 90%+British being pulled slightly towards the southeast for the rest which I know to be French and a bit of German. I do not think they can tell you the town your ancestors came from or anything like that.

    So it's $99 plus that they require one year commitment at $9 per month. They're kind of sneaky... So it's actually $207. But still worth it though.

    I've been trying to find a reliable test to take in Canada, but no one can give e answers. Some day it will come about. If I find out (very unlikely) that there is Khazar or Tatar DNA in me, I will be extremely pissed off.

    @ Heidi,

    you can order a kit online, it will be send to you, then you take some swabs for spittle or so and send it back it. Then you get the results.

    @ Kuzik

    what would be the criteria to rate those agencies? price, wealth of information mitrochondrial and other DNA etc?
