Genetic Genealogy/DNA Testing

Note: I have taken the following DNA tests: 23andme, AncestryDNA, Tribecode, MyHeritage, LivingDNA and have taken the Family TreeDNA’s Full Sequence mtDNA and Family Finder tests. I have also done the updated DNA Tribes’s SNP Analysis. It is my opinion, that 23andme is the best test, especially for African-Americans and Puerto Ricans, followed by AncestryDNA and then Family TreeDNA. The DNA Tribes SNP Analysis gives a very detailed admixture breakdown of your ethnic admixture as well as shows your affinity to known populations in the world.

Before taking any DNA test, I highly recommend reading the International Society Of Genetic Genealogy’s comparison chart first to see the pros and cons of each test.

    This of course would mean that you are a descendant of Robert II King of Scots. Geni.com is awesome
