Great, I'm glad it worked for you! Which company did you use?
I used ancestry. com
Thank you for the mho
Have you ever tried one?
Never will. There are a lot of check box agreements you have to make sure not to check. If you read some of them carefully they ask you if you can give up your right to but all your health information up for public records and to allow insurance companies to see it. And obviously in doing so most insurance can use that as ammunition's to deny you. I doubt I am 100% Kurdish cause I am blond, but do I really care enough to pay $99 to find out what other mixed heritage I am? No I do not.
I’ve never tried it either. That is a lot of money. I didn’t realize this service is that expensive.
Yep and here are the sources showing how they can use your health record to the public. I mean if you are okay with that then I'd say go for it. Read the 2nd link. www.nytimes.com/.../military-dna-tests.htmlinternethealthreport.org/.../
Those are some very scary things. It’s important to think about these before making the decision to do a test though.
Yep I really hope anybody reading that source would reconsider. I might end up doing one when I am like in my 70s-80s and near the stage of my death. Cause then it won't matter.
True, that would be a good time to do it.
Either that or change the rules you know? Like don't sell the info and have them sign a big long contract if they do sell your info to other public domains or to pharmacies and insurance companies that you could sue them.

How would she know that though? Did she already know what her genetics were beforehand?
This was my sister in law. My wife's grandparents came through Ellis Island. We visited it when we went to NYC. She was able to get copies of the ship's manifests that her grandparents were on. My sister in law was able to get that same information using Ancestry. com.
Wow, that’s impressive!
Yes, I thought it was pretty cool.
Cool, that’s very good to know!
@jerre Do people hire you to do genealogy work for them, or is this a hobby? Just curious. I have a cousin who was real into it and she did the family tree on my mom's side of the family.
I agree that it’s probably more accurate for Caucasians. I imagine it can be very hard to trace the background of someone whose lineage has been disrupted by slavery.
I have a feeling that this is true!
It actually isn't though. They market it as true to just take your money.https://youtu.be/IIWlatQt4KE
What I meant is that your comment is true.
Oh my bad..
