Understanding the Ethnic Ancestry in Your DNA Test

November 9 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Many DNA tests now include a breakdown of your overall ethnic ancestry. Yet many people don’t get the results they expect. Different companies may show different results for the same person. People also wonder why siblings see different results in the same test, or why Native American ancestry does not always show up as expected. This session will address these issues and more, such as which tests to consider and which to avoid. We will review and compare actual ethnicity reports from AncestryDNA, 23andMe, FTDNA’s Family Finder, MyHeritage, Living DNA, GEDmatch, National Geographic’s Geno 2.0 and Insitome. This program is co-sponsored by the Western Michigan Genealogical Society.
