  1. My father is 100% Italian (from northern Tuscany), and though we have over a dozen different family lineages tracing our family back to the 1200's (from local parish records), I only got 35% Italian on the 23andme ancestral report (even though I'm 50% Italian). I did have an extra 15% Broadly Southern European, which I assume is the rest of my Italian ancestry. This is a common occurrence for a lot of people who take this test I've read.

    23andme (and the other Ancestral DNA companies) compare your DNA sequences to people who have lived in certain regions for several generations, but the current DNA populations might be somewhat different from the people who might have lived in this region at the time of your ancestors. As the databases increase (and the testing methods improve), there will likely be more specific ancestral DNA matches instead of broad classifications.

  2. Knowing how regressive caucasian genetics are, how did these very white-looking white people expect to have something else than European????

  3. "I thought I would be something cool but I'm just white"
    Why does Buzzfeed hire these people? Eastern Europe, Southern Europe and NW Europe includes Russia, Italy, France, Germany and a slew of other really amazing cultures and backgrounds.

  4. I thought I was just English and German, I did the Canadian ancestry dna kit, my highest was Scottish /Irish, then UK, western Europe, and Scandinavian. And I thought I was appropriating Celtic culture with my Celtic tattoos, guess I wasn't…

  5. So when the whites find out they're 99.9% European that's boring, but when the black girl finds out she's 97.5% sub-saharan african it's interesting and represents her "blackness."

  6. Mormon Ancestry traces my direct roots on my fathers side back to the War of 1812 and some back to the old world: English, German, French, Cherokee and Welsh, in about that order. That is America for you (and yes, not just the USA), we are human mutts and proud of it.

  7. "I thought I'd be something interesting, I'm just a white guy"…
    " Just boring white…
    "Nothing interesting just white

    WHY do white people always talk like this? Maybe because other cultures celebrate heritage but they don't? Maybe if they did, they'd dig in and see they're interesting too! Stop always playing the that role, not good.

  8. I'm french and i know my ancestries(official french état civil), i made a test (23&me) and the results are wrong.
    Just to say be careful with these tests.

  9. I hope there is no violation of privacy agreement. Till now, No body is sure what these testing companies are cooking as testing of mtdna sequences may reveal medical information.
