In Response To: 23andme offer ()
Thanks for posting this offer! I took advantage of it and purchased a kit. Now I need a little help deciding who to test.
I am female and I am primarily interested in the genealogical data rather than the medical data--that being said, is there any benefit to testing my DNA vs my maternal uncle's dna (in order to capture both the y and mtdna on my mother's side)?
I'm planning to hopefully convince my father to take a test in the future (which will take some MAJOR convincing) in order to capture both of his lines. So once I have both tests completed (maternal uncle and father), I SHOULD have all of the same info I would have if I took the test myself and then some, right?! I'm just trying to make sure I'm not missing anything by not taking the test myself. Thanks in advance for any help!
