>I have a question about the percentages of the BioGeographic ancestry
Yes, they WOULD be different because MY bioGeographic ancestry is a mixture of both my parents' biographic ancestry, aka autosomal dna. I get 50% from each parent, but I don't get 50% of the exact same dna profile as theirs.
>Wouldn't it take more advanced test--price range beyond the
I don't know that there IS a way to more accurately pinpoint the diverse make-up YET. Who knows what the future will provide?
>Eample: my biogeopgraphic test revealed 73% West African; 17%
I don't know of a way to predict what any one of your parents results would be based on your results. As I said above, your results are a mix of theirs and there is no way to pinpoint what you got from whom without testing them. And if they had similar ethnic ancestry, (or some similar ancestry) it still would not be clear what came from whom.
And there are millions of possible permutations of their ancestry which any one child of theirs would get.
