Results Comparison – AncestryDNA vs 23andMe – Genetic DNA Tests

Genetic testing has completed and I have my results from BOTH kits to share! Please note, I did not dive very far into the living relatives portion, as I do not want to show names of people who did not agree to be in this video.

If you decide to purchase a kit, I would appreciate it if you used one of my referral links! 🙂

  1. Did you answer the 1100 questions they ask you for the 23 and me test? I did and wanted to know if they base their findings on your questions or if they did there own. Like skin tone, hair color, and eye color. Just things like that.

  2. It actually makes a lot of sense that an aunt would come up as a cousin. A cousin shares 25% of your genes and an aunt also shares 25% of your genes. So it was likely an easy mistake for Ancestry to make.

  3. I'd def. go with Ancestry vs 23andMe. It's a myth about the single allele of a single gene being responsible for attached or detached earlobes – Earlobes do not fall into two categories, "free" and "attached"; there is continuous variation in attachment point, from up near the ear cartilage to well below the ear. While there is probably some genetic influence on earlobe attachment point, family studies show that it does not fit the simple one-locus, two-allele myth. You should not use earlobe attachment to demonstrate basic genetics… This is a company that bases their rep on reliable genetic information, and yet they include this myth as a fact. It immediately leads me to distrust the actual results from that company on everything, altogether except as entertainment and a rough idea. Also, the results from any company are reliant on the size of their database and algorithm.

  4. I chose Ancestry DNA and my daughter gave it to me. I have not received results however,I am excited to receive it. I enjoyed the video it created an interest in exploring my lineage.

  5. This whole ancestry business-and it's BIG business-is fraudulent. If one goes to 3 different services and gets 3 substantially different results that should be enough to convince anyone of how bogus they are. The fact you were 12% Iberian in one and 0% in the other clearly demonstrates it.

  6. I did 23andme but I want to take other DNA tests as well because I was so confused with my results. I thought I was more Italian than 23andme suggested because my mother is like 80%+ Italian. 23andme also suggested I was middle eastern/west asian but it was confusing on how they stated it. 23andme also labels Native Americans as South Americans. My results showed I have certain ancestry in Europe but they also showed those same countries under the Asian section and said I didn't have those ancestry. Overall, I'm confused with my reports and I want to take other tests and just combine them.
