I received my Ancestry by DNA results and they weren't too surprising.
82% SSAF, 15% IE and 3% NA. I wanted to add to the discussion that National Geographic's Genographic project is one of the cheapest tests on the market and it is very reputable. They identify haplogroup and tribe as well. They also allow you to enter your results in the Family Tree DNA database so you can join any of the numerous groups or discussions there. National Geographic is very good for people who want to see migrational patterns of their ancestors as well. I've done 3 DNA tests over the past three years: Ancestry By DNA, Ethnic Tribes DNA and Genographic Project. The three compared and contrasted against one another have definitely yielded more information than a paper trail or single test though I had to save up a few years to be able to do the tests. Also, my tribal affiliation is southern African and southeastern African--so I don't think these places find we all come from the same few tribes. The tribes I am associated with are Hadzabe people, a nomadic people from the southeast Africa and the Tsonga (hence my name) a thriving cultural group descended from Shaku Zulu of South Africa. My brother is testing next and yes I did foot the bill because it is more of my passion than his. I'm trying to convince my paternal uncle to test as well because he holds the last key to his paternal line. It's all very interesting. I'm very glad I became involved!
