    Post Your Y-DNA and mtDNA Tests Results ?

    I ordered one of those DNA print tests. It wasn't very expensive ($158) so I decided to give it a try. Depending on the results, I might make my Mom take one, too. :-)

    I keep y'all posted.

    I've been thinking about getting one of those myself. If it turns out to be worth the money it costs, please let me know : )

    PS: Nice avatar. I used to write to Mrs/Miss (?) Conway years back. She's pretty cool.

    They don't do racial classifications, they give you a gene spread.

    It's graph and it's supposed to show from which of the three groups (Caucasoid, Negroid, Mongoloid) your genes come. That's all. Not entirely informing, but interesting anyway.

    My prediction, based on what I know of my family history, my body, & migration patterns, is:

    Caucasoid with perhaps an East Asian sneaking in somewhere in the distant past.

    I recevied my DNA test kit today. It involves using these plastic thingies to scrap cells from the inside of the cheek, and then mailing those plastic thingies back to the lab.

    I'll will be sending it off tomorrow.

    Hello Sigrun,

    I am interested which DNA test you are talking about. Do you possibly have a URL for the testers? The only ones I know about that do similar tests are www.oxfordancestors.com - they recently offered a genetic test to see if you have Viking genes or not...

    Regards

    LOKI

    If I had Viking genes, I'd shoot myself.:Armed

    ...but really, I think I'll hold out until they can tell me a little more. Getting a test back stating, "Guess what, surprise! you're white" is a little vague.

    I'd be prone to write back, "Guess what, no shit."

    The test came from a place called DNAPrint genomics in Sarasota, FL. I chose it because, frankly, it was the least expensive.

    http://www.dnaprint.com $158.-

    Everyone is always complaining about those "Whiter than thou" arguments. Well, now I'll have proof that I'm Whiter than thou!

    I'm kidding...

    Yours,
    Sigrun

    I made a post about this a long, long time ago. I don't think the tests are "designed" to report admixture where there is none. Because people could get their DNA tested somewhere else to prove this, and sue them for being fraudulent.

    As soon as I have $158 to waste, I'll order this test too. If it turns out I'm even 1% African I'll have to kill myself, though. :eek:
