Comments on: A Sneak Peek Into The AncestryDNA Ethnicity Update – Coming Soon To Your DNA Results! The official blog of Ancestry Sun, 05 Jul 2015 16:08:52 +0000 hourly 1 By: Jacqueline Croslin (Flake) Jacqueline Croslin (Flake) Fri, 10 Jan 2014 01:25:51 +0000 I am curious if there is a discount if purchasing the Autosomal DNA Tests in bulk. If so, is there a site specific to the pricing breakdown?

5-10 Kits 79.00 ea
10-15 Kits 69.00 ea
15+ Kits 59.00 ea

It would be a big help to those who wish to do a large family reunion type project, and it will also benefit your project in the process.

If one already exists please let me know, if not I think it would be a great help to many who want to invest their time and energy into expanding the data without going broke in the process.

I also read a comment about those who participated prior to the changes and only have the x or the y test not the Autosomal test, that they could be offered a coupon for a discounted retest, again this would help both your program and theirs.

I am sending my first test out tomorrow and looking forward to doing many more and seeing the results. I have two more that are sitting on my desk but I really want to see the results before I decide who I am going to ask to participate depending on my results.

I am posting this on the blog but it does not seem to be a Q&A format so I am going to also forward it to customer service.

Thanks for your time :-)

The test results were 100% European. I have a lot of documented Native American relatives and
I do not have the white skin of the Europeans.

This is a complete rip-off and I plan to cancel my I will not longer give money to
a company that charges real money for phony science.

By: Christine Christine Mon, 07 Oct 2013 17:44:53 +0000 Wow, folks! I would suggest reading a couple books on DNA (try DNA USA) because some people who are disappointed might understand their results better. I could have an American Indian mother and a European father and my results might show 75% European and 25% American Indian. It all depends on what you inherit from the completely random process of DNA inheritance. I have LOVED my results and found MANY different connections to new “cousins”. You might not see the connections to these cousins immediately but if you search you will! Also, don’t forget that documented relationships may not in truth be the same as DNA relationships because of human events such as adoption, infidelity and these days even donors. You can never be 100% of what went on centuries ago, even if the documents say something happen, other events may have played a factor in what DNA you have!

By: Trish Trish Sat, 05 Oct 2013 14:45:17 +0000 Tom Bombadil. Love it!! I’m also very excited to see the updates to my DNA results.

By: Laura Laura Sat, 05 Oct 2013 14:11:14 +0000 What do I think of my results? Disappointed. I’ve been told nothing that couldn’t have been found by perusing my tree. Of the hundreds of “matches”, only 2 were authentic. Wow.

By: Dorothy Kibler Jamison Dorothy Kibler Jamison Sat, 05 Oct 2013 14:07:38 +0000 I was completely surprised by 76 percent Scandinavian results, and after reading the comments, which I don’t usually do, I find that the initial results were somehow “heavy” in this area. I would have appreciated knowing this sooner, or having some communication from you about this. I launched into a Viking reading spree so I could better understand this. I did enjoy the ride, but found out that they were everywhere, leaving their genetics wherever they went. I became confused as to “timeline” and decided that I was underwhelmed with your test results. Furthermore, the emails I received about DNA matches were unenlightening. More than half the time I couldn’t even call them up on your website. I love and have enjoyed working on my tree, but couldn’t figure out how the DNA figured in to it. I hope these new results can shed some light on my family’s past. I would not have been able to spend the money to be tested anywhere else. For that I thank you. Can’t wait for this revision and would welcome more communication from you!

By: Marjie Marjie Sat, 05 Oct 2013 13:48:35 +0000 I am impressed with the preview results which are considerably more detailed than the initial percentages. I am looking forward to the ongoing research as more information becomes available.

By: Matt Matt Sat, 05 Oct 2013 05:00:41 +0000 I have to agree that I don’t understand why people are complaining. Mine are pretty off with having countries that we have no connection to paper trails wise and not having countries that our paper trail does show. Im not a hundred percent sure though is the broken up list ones that show up in your dna or simply the ones included in that region.

By: Sally Bender Sally Bender Sat, 05 Oct 2013 02:33:58 +0000 I laugh every time a subscriber complains about their ethnicity. Like many suggest, educate yourself about the true workings of DNA. when someone complains that their ggggrandfather was German and all his sons as well, and why don’t I show ancestry to Germany? With the randomness of DNA, maybe you just didn’t get that particular gene. Maybe you got your genes carried down by your ggggrandmother who was a mix of her ggggggrandfather who got his genes from England, and there you are with this wonderful mix of many people. AND if we think for one minute that no one person strayed outside their marriage and produced a child, you are most likely mistaken. found a half sister I didn’t know I had, which lead me to my father that I have always looked for, I started with. No clue, no name, nothing! And they are found. everyone who says it isn’t accurate, log off.stay off You don’t belong here.
