Most of the people I contacted weren't even related to me; they just had either West African, Central European, and/or Persian/Turkish/Caucasus in their results. I don't find find that very accurate.

2) My 8% Unknown. I was hoping to find proof of my Native American ancestry, but I'm guessing that it must be included in that area.

Overall, I was quite pleased, but it left me even more curious of that 8%! I just tested with 23andMe to get a more in-depth view. It is $99 as well, but it provides health and ancestry results, and bases the list of possible relatives on your DNA.
How do the results otherwise compare to what you expected?

I was wondering why there's an unknown too.
