Interesting story on an Ancestry DNA test in the Indo this morning:
Irish woman discovers long-lost brother after they both do online DNA test
She probably decided to go public after seeing the Late Late.

I played a very minor role in a similar thing recently. Two sisters who were abandoned as infants (separately) found out about each other after each decided on their own to do DNA testing. They are my fourth cousins and I was able to assist in figuring out the birth parents. A news feature will be running on them here in the states sometime this week. They met for the first time on Friday.

Ordered my first kit from ancestryDNA, being Irish I expect it to be boring, as in your Irish the end. The community thing seems fun. But what is the turn around? I've seen some people online complain.

Also I know they don't do the y and x haplogroup, but I understand their is a site for free for the y is their x one?

When I ordered mine in November, it was a 2 week turn around from ordering to results. I couldn't believe how fast it was. I had myself geared up for the time frame they had set out. It is possible that they are just backlogged from the offer they had around mother's day? I did read that around those times when they have money off promotions, they do tend to be alot slower with the results.

That saliva sample is difficult and I feel there may be more than saliva, here's hoping it's a good sample.

I sent my sample away on 1st March and it's still not in Lab Processing so looks like it will take the full 6-8 weeks. The anticipation is killing!

Does anybody know whether they stand by the offer they give you immediately after buying the DNA kit for the membership. It was initially half the price they quote but now has gone back up. The site seems a bit badly made to be honest.

So FTDNA has updated their "My Origins" feature and, at least for me, it seems pretty bad. They used to have me as 100 percent "British Isles." I'm now 17 percent East Europe for some reason, which makes no sense at all and is at odds with the two other companies I've tested with, not to mention my family tree.

It would seem FTDNA continues to lag behind in this area.

In fairness, they are all estimates, and can't truly be relied upon with certainly. I actually found my new FTDNA ethnicity results more similar to my Ancestry results, whereas before they were a good bit different.

FTDNA:
West and Central Europe 66%
Iberia 20%
British Isles 9%
East Europe 3%
Asia Minor < 2%
West Middle East < 2%

Ancestry:
Europe West 52%
Iberian Peninsula 19%
Great Britain 16%
Italy/Greece 4%
Ireland 3%
Scandinavia 3%
West Asia 3%
Caucasus 2%
Middle East < 1%

I know 20 from John Rogerson quay in Dublin and back. They post dhl but surely that could be cheaper. The day I got put it back in the post next day they get via an post. Probably 3 euro round trip with them.

Hope I don't have to wait to long, another stupid thing is spouse. Just because people have a child does not mean they where married.

Started building my family tree and it's heavily on the pink side.
