Sure! According to my results, I'm 61% West African, 19% Central European, 12% Persian/Turkish/Caucasus, and 8% Unknown. There were a few things that I was disappointed about, though: 1) The way they calculate possible cousins. 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.

I'm waiting for my results from 23andme--should come in within 2 weeks. At $99 I decided it was a good time to satisfy my curiosity. I plan to convince my parents and sisters--and aunts, uncle, and cousins--to do it to get a broader picture.

The "unknown" part would bother me. Are there genotypes that haven't been mapped yet?

All I could think of when I read this was one of my BFF getting this done for her dog. They came back with some different breeds that were recognizable like collie, etc but there was one that was way out there-she had to look it up. We joked and said I should send in Casey's to see what they say he is.

Here's what I found on unassigned DNA on 23andme, which I'm assuming is the same as unknown:

Ancestry Composition has the ability to assign pieces of your DNA at several geographic scales. This is important because DNA varies in where it’s found in the world. One piece of DNA might be found just in, say, Finnish people, so we can with some confidence call this DNA Finnish. Another piece of DNA might be found with some frequency in England, Norway and Germany. Instead of choosing arbitrarily from among these regions, Ancestry Composition will label DNA like that “Nonspecific Northern European."

If a piece of DNA is found all over Europe, like in Ireland, Italy, Spain, and Poland, but not outside Europe, Ancestry Composition will label that DNA “Nonspecific European."

Finally, when Ancestry Composition encounters DNA that is very widespread, like a piece of DNA that’s found in Europe, the Near East, and Asia, it will label that DNA “Unassigned.”

It's cool this is available. I, personally, would not be interested bc I feel I already know all that i need to know about my background. But I imagine this service would be invaluable for a person who was adopted and had no info about her bio-parents...or maybe those ppl who describe themselves as "American mutts" and so forth, who have no idea what they are.

I hope it's accurate, tho.

An anthropologist came to my college and said that my jawline shows I come from mongols. Can you say Attila the Hun?

Very unscientific but I liked it, bloodthirsty that I am.

TNB I'm certain that your 4% uncertain is a tres classy gene!

I know some Finns. Very interesting people. Quirky, hard working, creative, helpful. Of course I am stereotyping here, but whatever.
