My review for 23 & Me and ancestry DNA tests…

I took both DNA ancestry test by 23 & Me and and here is my review.

So for both tests you spit a lot in the test tube, then you ship it back. They pay for the shipping.

You wait about 6 weeks, when your DNA test results are in, they will send you an email, and you can view your results online.

My review for

When you look at your DNA test from ancestry it looks like this:

And then it goes into more detail about the history and the roots:

Then is shows what genetic communities you are from:

My genetic community is from the Midwest. This is no surprise for me. My parents are from the Midwest, and our family has been there for so many generations.

Then they show you all these traits that you have genetically:

They also do health dispositions but I didn’t do this on ancestry, because I already did on 23 & Me.

Then they also have your DNA matches. My Uncle and his kids show up, obviously lol. has a lot of genealogy information. It is a great site for genealogy.

23 & Me has more detail. I like 23 & Me better. I feel like more people take the 23 & Me test, hence I have more DNA matches.

This is what it looks like:

But then it goes into more detail and shows what Cities and Countries you have DNA matching in:

Then they show your your ancestor timeline:

Your Chromosome map.

Your Haplogroup, how cool is that?

How much Neanderthal DNA you have.

Then they have a trait section which I like and find interesting and it is actually spot on. I am scared of heights, public speaking, but I can sing:

Then the health, carrier status. I do not carry any of these diseases or conditions.

Health predisposition, this is the scary part. You need to decide if you want to know this or not. I have a variant for colon cancer, but just one variant. This scares me because I lost my friend last year to Colon cancer, but I don’t have a family history of it.

Then on 23 & Me you can view your DNA matches.

I found my adopted first cousin on 23 & Me, and reunited him with my Uncle (his Dad), and his Mom. It was wonderful!

I think 23 & Me has more detail, and I enjoy it more.

    Very interesting but what about privacy of these data. Do all these data go into a central database ?

      I have no Idea but some people think it does. I know the cops use dna from dna tests like this on another site called ged match.

    That’s really amazing that you found your adopted first cousin. I wasn’t sure which one to try between these two tests. Thanks for this very informative review… I guess I’ll try 23 & Me.

    This is all very interesting! You’ve really provided a good summary of the reports each product provides and I also love that you showed a preference and why. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you so much for sharing your review! I’ve been interested in trying out 23 and me but been on the fence about it. So much valuable information here, it’s nice to get a thorough review.

    I chuckled over relatives appearing though that’s expected. This is so interesting. Tell things as height singing and health issue. Hope to try it some day. Great info. Xx

    This is so much information.

    I’ve thought about doing something like a family tree but never got around to it.

    Not sure I would want to know the likelihood of the conditions listed though.

      That’s true, I didn’t want to know I have a gene for colon cancer, right after a friend I grew up with died from it.

    You have shown me some more things I can find out. I have done my test and have a log in but so far have just found some very distant relatives. This is really useful.

      Wow, I have a lot of Aunts, Uncles, first cousins, but I have a big family. I’m glad to help, enjoy. Thanks for the visit!
