Very cool I never knew what side my dads family was and now I have somewhat of an idea! It's worth the price! I loved all the information they give you and how they give it to you! I think everyone should do it
Bought it as a gift and it won the birthday present options! Everyone knows someone that this is perfect for and it's always a good thing for siblings to get their parents. The test results are still pending!!
I just recently (as in I last night) ordered the kit from Amazon. I've read reviews on a lot of different ancestry services and 23andme really seemed to be the best bang for your buck. I can't wait to use it.
Very accurate results as far an an ancestry breakdown in terms of percentage. However, I found it a little too broad in certain categories. For instance 15% Iberian Region, could be Spain or Portugal. In my case, I was under the impression I was half Portuguese, now I know only 15%.
The test was really easy to do, and the results were given quick enough. All of the information was very interesting and educational, they have access to the history as well as the science behind the information given. And the a little to connect with people you share your DNA with
The results took a while but I think it’s worth it you find out so many things you never would have known about yours I would most definitely recommend to a friend if they were interested in the product
I purchased my first kit about seven years ago. It didn't have much info to share for African Americans. The sample population has increased but they took away their best feature: Countries of Ancestry.
I have always wanted to test my DNA. I have always been curious as to what my ancestry is. Not only did I find this out, I also found out my risks for things such as cancer. I found out so many more things about myself than I bargained for!
23&me was a fun thing to do. I knew a lot about my background but a few things surprised me. I also got the health done, this was interesting and I’m sure ever expanding. I did feel processing took a very long time which was the worst part.
One swab provides so much information. The site also helps connect you to connect with distant family members. I especially like the feature that tells me what medical conditions I'm predisposed to
Q & A
Is really worth the money ?
Is there anyway I could get this for free and review it? I have heard nothing but good things!
Always wanted to try one of these similar products....worth it?
Has anyone tried their DNA tests? How does it compare to AncestryDNA? Do you get the ancestry analysis along with the breakdown of genetic predispositions (more likely to need more sleep, have curly hair, like coffee, be good at running, etc) or is it one or the other?
What are your personal experiences?
