Note that this mentions DEEP ancestral origins. This testing does not give you the name of a specific, current-day, group of people with whom you share ancestry.

Since most of us can look in the mirror and 'see' Africa in our ancestry, most of us are looking for something a little less broad, and the deep ancestry testing does not give you that. I was less than thrilled to learn that my paternal grandmother's lineage was Ethiopian, but, 50,000 years ago.
