Re: DNA genealogy's price tag
In Response To: DNA genealogy's price tag ()

Hi again,

You asked "I am looking to take the DNA genealogy test. Which test gives the best value?
The National Geographic website is the cheapest, is it OK?"

I would assume that Nat'l Geo is "OK" and so are all the others.
If you're planning on testing the female line (mtDNA), I believe that Nat'l Geo will test
only the HVR1 which will give your the most distant ancestors. FTDNA tests the mtDNA HVR1 and HVR2
of females which gives most recent ancestors.

I hope that this was helpful. As I said in the previous post, it depends on what you want to do.
Do you just want to find out about your African ancestors (tribes) or more recent ancestors or
your heritage percentage i.e. African, Native Amer. etc? Good Luck.
