    I have lots of unknown Central Asian Ancestry! Error or Truth?

    Stumped! I have unknown Central Asian ancestry. Lots of it. I can’t help but think this is an error, but maybe it’s not? So I’ve known my ancestry pretty well, considering I’m such a mixed person. I'm half Puerto Rican (Spanish, Taíno, Corsican, and distant West African), a quarter Japanese...

    Share your 23andMe Ancestry Composition

    The new 23andMe experience, starting in 2016 and replacing the old version of other customers the early months of 2017, has been a disappointment for many veteran users. One major let down is that it is no longer possible to search for people with whom to share by location or other profile...

    New 23andMe Ancestry Timeline is a fraud

    I was finally able to check the new Ancestry Timeline on 23andMe after my account was migrated to the new 23andMe experience. The verdict will be brief. It is a fraud. I have a complete paper genealogy for the last 7 generations in every line, and many lines go back over 400 years. All my...

    How do I test my haplogroup?

    I always wanted to know for sure where my ancestors are from. First of all, I'm very skeptical and have doubts about how accurate these results really are. How much does it cost to take one of those tests, and how accurate do I need to expect them? Let's say they show me that my dna is from...

    Does the blood type strictly determine my ancestry?

    Hi! I'm new in this forum, so here's my first thread. My blood type is B (Rh positive). In theory, I should have asian ancestry, since that blood type had its origin in that region. HOWEVER, as far as I know, none of my ancestors came from Asia. I know that I descend from Europeans (Spain) and...
