>>>Absolutely! Yes, there are different reasons for having the DNA testing done. That's why it's so important for folks to understand exactly what the different tests are designed to accomplish.>>>
I agree totally, this board has been a great source of information on the different types of testing by folks posting their experiences. So far I have only tested my mtDNA but soon my brother will be testing and we want to make sure we are comfortable with the testing company.
I inserted "African's" because the articles spoke in detail about many other groups but very little about African. I was told by an African woman that she was forbidden to marry the brother of her 1st cousins husband. Of course she is one woman from one region, I don't know if there are general marriage practices in Africa that would be different than any other part of the world.
Thanks for responding
