Out of Africa

Asia

Europe

Hah, Slavic DNA ?
Going by these tests, a Pole born and bred in Israel will be having Hebrew DNA ?

I really really do not understand how a ethno-linguistic group can be tested for something which is a physical matter.

As for finding your 'roots', I think best method is to try and visit all your grandparents and maybe even grand-grandparents (while you still can) - and their neighbors. They should clarify a lot of your questions.

On top of this, a person with a good eye and interest in anthropology can tell you what kind of 'white' you are - this can be done over the internet, as long as you provide good quality face & profile photos as well as your physical characteristics like body weight, height, age etc.

Except a lot of us are so mixed it doesn't even matter. I look like my mom, which means I don't even look Polish. Chances are I look French.

Well I think they understand something, it pin pointed one cousin who is actually my cousin on my mothers side, said
we were 4th cousin, ironically, my cousin did his tree and sent his dna without knowing anything about my sending,

my family name isnt up there that far on the tree. i only have my dads side up at this point.

so they are on to something.

Merged: What is the best site for genealogical DNA testing?

As the thread title asks, what's the best site for genealogical DNA testing and why? 23andme.com? Ancestry.com? Familytreedna.com?

I am very interested in this subject so I am adding comments to it in order to subscribe to this thread.
Here are some personal factoids:
99+% Eastern European Ethnicity
Y Chromosome Haplogroup I2a with a terminal SNP of I-Y4882*
Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroup T1a1b
An up to date web page with the latest information related to genetic genealogy and my personal test can be found here:
singingfalls/dna.html
Much to my surprise I have made contact with members of my ancestral family through this means. I have also found connections to Y DNA blood lines from Poland going back approx. 1500 years.

I have put together this web page to discuss my dna testing and its relationship to my Polish heritage.

Latest update. My cousins in Poland are now tested and we have interesting results. This journey into DNA testing is now making way for my wife of 41 years and I to come to Poland next spring. We are excited about this. I have put my DNA web page into the Polish language also now. Here is the URL: singingfalls.com/dna_polska.html
