    I used Ancestry DNA and I was shocked at how well it matched up with my family tree.

    43% England, Wales and Northwestern Europe
    30% Germanic Europe
    15% Norway
    10% Sweden
    2% Ireland and Scotland

    Some of the terminology might be off. For instance I have Danish but no Swedish ancestry but I'm assuming that was just thrown in as Swedish. Overall though I was impress, I thought that they would throw in a trace of Amerindian or something for sure

    AncestryDNA doesn't have a category for Danes, so your Danish ancestry is probably just included in your percentage of 'Germanic Europe'. Also, your 'Swedish' percentage might very well just be a result of your Norwegian ancestry. I got 46% percent 'Swedish', even though all my known, recent ancestors are Norwegian (going back around 150 years).

    MyHeritage is owned by Jews and run from Tel Aviv. They are probably the cheapest company out there at the moment, but they are supposedly more suitable for Jews (as they make up a large part of their customer base), and not so precise for Europeans.

    That is certainly more than enough to feel certain about one's ancestral history, but still, DNA testing shows how much of one's own genetics is inherited from the different regions of one's ancestors. Not that it necessarily matters, in the grand scope of things, but some people find that interesting.

    I just assumed that my Danish was thrown into Swedish. I have a Danish and a Norwegian Great Grandparents so about 25% Scandinavian as reflected in the DNA results. I'm 1/4 German plus I have some German and Dutch in my Colonial American side so 30% seems pretty accurate there

    If you're concerned about supporting Jewish DNA companies with your money, then I guess that the only company which is not owned by Jews is Living DNA in Britain. It is, however, owned and run by leftists with an agenda to set out to prove that races do not exist and that we are all one. They supposedly do this by overestimating British ancestry and give it to everyone who doesn't have an ounce of genealogical British ancestry. Well, you can still take the raw data and correct their results by running it through calculators like DNA Land and GEDMATCH.

    Ancestry isn't owned by Jews either. They're probably leftists though

    Jews or leftists, not so big difference... Leftists serve the Marxist and neo-Marxist ideologies, so it's almost the same thing...

    Usually I'm thinking wisely before deciding whom I am paying to, if I have the choice to decide that.

    Did you do the DNA test yet? Would be interesting to see the results, if you wanted to share.

    No, I didn't yet. I still didn't decide which company to pick... if I'm ever going to pick one... Yes, I think it would be interesting to see the results too, I'm curious... but it's not a priority... I'll wait some more...

    Maybe some of us should make their own company to test basically for Germanic heritage? Some companies are specialized on Jews, so why not having one specialized on Germanic heritage? Personally I am interested in Germanic heritage mostly, and I'm not satisfied for example about having "Germany and France" as one category... because I don't consider them as being one single people... I think those tests and databases should evolve a little more, to be worth paying them...

    So... I'm still waiting... for now I didn't find anything which I consider worth spending my money on...


    My conclusion in January this year was this:

    Well, I guess that's enough...

    Thank you to all of you who bothered to give me answers and advises in this thread!

    So, I don't think I'm going to do any DNA testing at all... no matter which is the company. It's a bit (or more) tricky... That's my conclusion.

    I guess all parts of my genealogy are good, otherwise I wouldn't be what I am now. To what precise percentage is what, I guess that's less important... However, it's impossible to know it for sure...
    For the moment I didn't change my mind... but if something really worth spending my money on appears... I might reconsider it.

    Now I'm happy with what I know from more traditional sources of information, like genealogy and asking family members... and even racial classification. Looking on my mother's family, on the direct family line, they all look as pure Dacians, with maybe a bit of Slavic influence, but I don't bother about that. In Moldova would be quite normal to find some Slavic influence, at least something like 3%... However, I might be wrong about it, meaning there are chances to not have any distant Slavic ancestry from that side at all... At this point, I keep researching using traditional methods.

    Thanks for your interest, Hersir!

    Why would it matter if the companies are run by Jews or leftists. They provide accurate results for European peoples, and the 1% African or Ashkenazi is statistical noise. The “Jews run it so it must be bad” line of thought seems to be most espoused by those who, in reality, aren’t purely Germanic, sometimes not even purely European. Many of my family members have taken the tests, and they’re all quite accurate.
