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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Native American shows up as "Asian". Not sure if most realize that or not.

  2. Chaos Dom says:

    i would luv to my result because of my porhyria

  3. DJ M says:

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. it's worth noting that 23andme only can track your mom's side if you're a girl, ancestrydna can track both your mom and dad's side if you're a girl!

  6. that's so weird– i'm a smith and all of my family immigrated to that part of kentucky and a bunch of smiths popped up for yours lol

  7. I have 347 Neanderthal variants. More than 99% of customers lol so donโ€™t feel too bad.

  8. Hey! Iโ€™m part of the Appalachian settlers too! From Southwest Virginia ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Spencer W says:

    They add a tiny % of African and/or native to all white Americans

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Ancestry only works real good if ur straight up white American.

  13. 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.

  14. Already did my test

  15. Wil liam says:

    At time of this Video, Ancestry.com had significantly more world populations tested then 23andme. Now (May) 23andme has updated to a range of world tested populations that now slighlty surpasses Ancestry.com
    ***relevant to Accuracy

  16. You can upload your raw dna to GEDmatch! I did it and it sure breaks it down! Way more showed up!

  17. M Mom says:

    I was going to do this until I found out that by sending them your DNA sample, they own the rights to it and can sell it. No thanks.

  18. Ember Grey says:

    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.

  19. If it's less than 0.5% on 23andMe it's very likely it's just statistical noise. Ancestry results are not deterministic.
