Awesome! Easy, fast, and extensive! I ordered this when it was on sale on Amazon, came with simple instructions and was very easy to use the kit. I also got my results back quickly with a detailed and interesting report. It allows you to see other users who share your DNA and you are able to message and connect with them if you choose. Very fun! Would definitely recommend to anyone curious about their ancestry!
this was so much fun to look at! from genealogy to physical things it was spot on! it was surprising that it could tell my caffeine habits to how active I tend to be to which fingers tend to be longer. it is very in depth and I think anyone who's interested its this should try it
This was so interesting! I loved having the blanks filled in about my family. I did the health side of it as well and it gave warnings to lots of things that I now know to look out for!
This site is super awesome! It gives you so many insights into your ancestry and possible health problems. If possible, find a study that you may be eligible for and the cost may be taken care of!
Really interesting information! Fun knowing specifics about my ancestry and genetics makeup. Was really encouraging to know that information!
I bought 23&me when it was on sale for Amazon Prime Day. I bought the health and ancestry test for myself and my fiancé who was adopted and doesn't know how family or health history. It was really interesting to see our genetic info and did not take too long from the time we sent the samples. I want to get another one for my daughter!
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.
Bought this for my sister and it gives some interesting information. It gives information on what diseases you are susceptible to or if you are a carrier.
I wasn't sure about my family's history beyond my grandparents so it was very cool to get some more insight. It's more expensive than the ancestry.com test but includes health data which I thought was a huge plus.
23 and me helped me learn a lot about my genetic ancestry. I also learned that I have a lot of Neanderthal DNA, which I found fascinating! I also learned that I'm at genetic risk for macular degeneration, but not other diseases that they look at markers for.
