My Ancestry DNA Results Are Back!

A few weeks ago, I took advantage of a promotional offer from AncestryDNA. I have been tested with 23andMe and have blogged a lot about that, but I have held off with Ancestry because of their lack of allowing chromosome browsing. However, the promotional offer was good so I went for it.  I am amazed that my results are already back in. They just received my sample July 28th! That was a far shorter turnaround period than I expected.

I’ve only had a few moments to take a look, but you know what? As I have been learning how to do Google Hangouts On Air (HOA), I did a short test tonight. I made a broadcast to go through my results so I could share it with my mother. I can’t believe I’m posting it (and keeping it public for all to see), but here goes!  I might as well kill two birds with one stone. 

In doing this HOA, I am using my wi-fi, which is not recommended, so the video is grainy. I’ll hook up with a wire next time.  And yes, I am sitting on my bed. It’s bedtime ya know…  :-D

Many thanks to my partner in crime, Patrice for really getting me on a roll with doing Google Hangouts On Air! Not only am I looking forward to further exploring my DNA results but I am also going to be doing more with Google HOA.  Stay tuned….

  1. Great tutorial,Taneya! Other than presentation and their interface with other ancestry.com members (which is definitely a perk) I would love to know how your ancestry results compare with 23andme. My 23andme results showed only European ancestry, but when I uploaded them to GEDmatch, some previously unreported Native and Sub-Saharan ancestry was calculated. I am wondering whether all autosomal testing is pretty much the same or if there are meaningful differences.

  2. Hi Deborah. I will definitely be studying my results more closely so that I can compare Ancestry against 23andMe. Thanks!
