    I had my DNA done by a swab in my mouth. I see now a different type of DNA done by Ancestry will it provide the same information or more detail. I am 43% Irish, my father always said we were ” Black Irish”. I went to Ireland they stated there was no such thing. Most of my family I find in Missouri, VA, coming from who knows, a few I have been able to trace to Ireland however I do not know what country they were from. I think by grandmother was from well close to Russia. Can you help me
