    What genetic test would you recommend for Eastern Europeans and West Asians?

    I am primariy Eastern European, though I have Armenian ancestry also.
    I would like to get one of these "kits" to get tested, but I don't know which one to choose?
    Which genetic test is more specialized towards Eastern European and West Asian ancestry primarily?

    Please discuss.

    I think you should order Geno 2.0. It's 150$ now, and you can transfer it's results to FTDNA for free. 23andMe is great though but FTDNA and Genographic Project has more participants. Using the raw data you can access free admixture tools in the easiest way via Gedmatch.
