    Kind of curious about people's results.



    The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

    I actually seem to prefer these over my 23andme results ...:



    ***

    in comparison to my 23andme breakdown as shown here:


    lower NE-Asian and South Asian on 23andme in comparison, which FTDNA detected much more effectively IMO it appears

    thus I found FTDNA's myOrigins v2.0 to be the overall most informative bang for your buck commercial test out there based on my own personal viewpoint! whilst Ancestry.com on one hand gave me incredibly wild results: 27% Polynesian & 6% Central Asian ..like wtf

    I guess you could say you got your money's worth then!

    These are the 23andme transfer results. I wonder if it would be different if I got tested with ftdna.

    I would also want to have a test soon, but I do not know which one is more accurate, 23andme or AncestryDNA? Which one do you recommend me?

    I'm pretty sure there would be some variation, but should be similar in accordance with your ancestry.

    Which is why I find gedmatch interesting if you want a more in depth breakdown of your ancestry.

    I would say 23andme for beginners; it is roughly $99 USD for just a ancestry report; neanderthal percentages and basic mtdna and y-dna haplogroup designations. Between the two; I would say 23andme since it has more features you can explore with. FTDNA is better for advanced users who want more in depth views of their haplogroups that can be quite expensive depending on what you get.

    The money is not a problem, important is to find all that is possible. For me, 23andme appears with the cost 149₤, and FTDNA 99$.

    The choice is yours; whatever alternative you feel most comfortable with broski!

    23andme tends to leave a lot of 'Non-Specific' into your results...like "Non-specific NW Euro", or "Non-specific Euro/E.Asian" etc. What I like about FTDNA is that they assign every portion/piece of your DNA to an ancestral category-component.

    But if you don't mind a little non-specific in your results then 23andme is probably still the best single company available overall for most people-especially for newcomers as well; they seem to have very rigorous standards to their testing methodologies and are very Euro-centric in general or so I've heard. They for instance are the best test out there for assigning Iberian ancestry in anyone as far as I'm concerned. They also have a very large forum community on their site where you can discuss DNA, interact, and share ideas/thoughts.

    If you're mostly only interested in the Gedmatch calculators apart from the GedrosiaDNA ones(which is optimized for 23andme V4 data), then you're probably best off going with FTDNA or Ancestry.com as 95% of the calculators there are optimized for FTDNA/Ancestry.com raw datas with the higher genotyping rate and all.
