In Response To: Re: DNA Test Results ()
I am solely interested in learning some of my African ancestry instead of my racial makeup, so our interests are different. Although the core of DNA analysis may reveal analyses that are not conducted by African Ancestry, Inc., the purpose of their company reflected the knowledge I thought (as well as many others) African-Americans would never find out and the knowledge I so desperately wanted to gain. Therefore, I personally embraced their one-of-a-kind project wholeheartedly, despite what others may consider as “imperfections”.
My next agenda will be to test my father's mtDNA through AA, Inc. My father's Y-chromosome is of European origins, and that's not where my personal interest lies. If I had the money, I'd be collecting samples from kinfolk all over the country to determine the African ancestry of other ancestral lines that I believe are traceable directly back to our beautiful Motherland. I am sure the steps you've taken and the tests you've gotten reflected the knowledge you wanted to gain. Knowledge is golden, right?
Good Luck in your DNA endeavors,
