What can I learn from my DNA results?

Now I will write about somethings that you will need to deal with once you get the results of your testing. This often times can be a major challenge to our understanding.

The primary thing to understand is the results do not tell you a lot on their own. It is only when you compare it to other data that you get a understanding of your information. The key is comparing it to other peoples data and the various ethnic groups. In order to maximize the benefit from the testing you need to get other known family members to participate as well. If you are not able to do this you are comparing your results to a large database where depending on the people that have submitted you might not get a lot of information. You are only able to compare to other people in the database if they have agreed to share. Don't always expect to get a clear picture.

It's nice to be back. Yesterday was hectic with a household full of kids. As always please support my advertisers with a click.
