Genuine question - Was there one for everyone in the audience?

I'd hope so, how many people are in the Late Late audience? North of 100? That's a nice way to add to their database of actual Irish based samples.

There was indeed one for everyone in the audience.

I've suggested you use the search function to read many other threads about DNA on this forum.

I think the answer is pretty obvious: everyone will have a lot of matches, how close they are is potluck. As the years go by, more and more people are getting tested. Every time I log in, I have new matches. But the closest I've found and confirmed is a 3rd cousin.

Can i ask Pinky which company you took the test and do the different companies exchange there results with each other ?

I've used FTDNA - there is some exchange between companies but you have to pay to do it. Third party site gedmatch.com is the way to go.

FTDNA is currently accepting autosomal transfers for free.  You get your full list of matches.  They are charging $19 to unlock Chromosome Browser, myOrigins, and ancientOrigins.

This is their new policy as of last month.

It's a site where you can upload results from the 3 main DNA testing companies.

That studio seats 200, but the main advantage is that the event brought DNA ancestry before a much wider audience so it should generate better familiarity and a wider potential customer base.
All the DNA companies have serious customer communication issues, their claims are too strong and they obfuscate the results where the sample size is too small.

Well even if they got a 20% return rate that's not bad, an additional 40-50 Irish people in the AncestryDNA database is a start. Given that there was a bit of fun with it (using the currently unreleased "Genetic communities" feature) I imagine they might actually get a better return rate than that. It does help that the postage is free back to Dublin offices of Ancestry in John Rogerson quay.

Looked at a recording of the LLS today - very interesting section on DNA and absolutely great marketing by Ancestry.

I'm waiting on my own results at present, but recently got my wife's. Whilst we can get all her European results, on the LLS the 5 people sampled had DNA results narrowed down to province/county. Is this available for all people tested?
