  1. All that was was a commercial advertisment for dna test companys. Who cares if they matched identical…that part was easy. What I want to see is the percentage breakdown for each country. Yes they are part middle eastern but what % are each one.

  2. I took one of those tests once. Turns out I’m 4% pepperoni. I knew I should have brushed my teeth before using the swab!

  3. Dishonest! Those test have in fact been debunked! The Today Show must have been paid to lie… or they are up to they typical dishonesty. Either way, this is just another good reason NOT to trust anything said on the Today Show.

  4. Well, I adopted is my wife's BIO daughter. She sent in her "Spit" into AncestryDNA. It came back to her saying "RB is your biological father. His children are your 1/2 siblings.

    RB's family isn't happy about the "Family Secret" getting out but "RB's" Signature is on the adoption papers.

    AncestryDNA testing. The worst thing that ever happened to family secrets in the whole wide world.

    So much for accuracy.

  5. No, they do not share the exact DNA – women retain bits of DNA from men they're had relations with & children they've carried in their wombs

  6. I sent four mine and my granddaughter was on the first page and my nephew was on the second person and then it goes down 1,500 people that were my relatives. Show my new and some I didn't know so it is accurate.

  7. Mine was to ancestry.com and what it did it showed my family coming over from Europe, which I know cuz I've already did and did my genealogy. Then it showed my family and Massachusetts, Conn., Ohio, Iowa and Colorado just like I have. Two strands went into California which are my first cousins. Is very accurate from there.

  8. These DNA kits are a crock of bull and the results are never accurate. They will con you into believing something that is not true.

  9. Do you care. Didn't think so. Know Why? Because you just paid someone in the Shadow Government $80.00 to give them your DNA Profile, I wonder what decisions are being made with the results? Some kind of Nightmare Genetic Cleansing Agenda? New World Order 1984 has just taken 35 years longer to implement than predicted. There is still time, but not much.

  10. The fact that they did not go on the websites of the three companies, and compared ancestry percentages between the triplets makes me feel skeptical.

  11. I did the dna test and it came back that I’m related to Jeffrey Dahmer so now I have mailman on the grill in the yard and I’m seasoning my neighbor using a recipe by Gordon Ramsay

  12. This is just cataloging humans…enjoy giving up the last thing that separates you from another. Paid promotion propaganda! America, communism, Watch people. Watch. Read the signs.

  13. The math simply doesn't hold up. Even if the triplets are not exact duplicates, they have billions of strands of DNA, so if 99.6% of their DNA is identical, the odds are they would need to run thousands of tests to find just one result that differs from the others. They got significantly different results on all three tests. If those results were honest they achieved odds more unlikely than one person winning the powerball lottery three times in a row. 
    CBC Marketplace sent the DNA of twins to 5 different companies. A much better and unbiased study than a Today show advertorial. https://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/dna-ancestry-kits-twins-marketplace-1.4980976

  14. They actually aren't suppose to be the same. I hate how he says that. Everyones dna is different, even identical twins. My mom and her twin took a dna test and got allmost same results. But not exact.

  15. I'm happy for them.

    Not so happy for me. I tested my DNA through Ancestry DNA. The first results from almost 3 years ago were great, quite accurate when compared to my family tree. However, an update came along later on. Instead of being 85% Scandinavian, 11% Irish/Welsh/Scottish, 3% English, 1% Iberian (the same as my family tree indicates and what I know to be true about my ancestors) —- I became 46% Swedish and 54% Norwegian. Nothing of my European heritage. I emailed AncestryDNA and asked about this discrepancy. They said this adjustment was made up of new information they had acquired through research of some such thing. They had the audacity to say that perhaps some members of my family were the results of an affair or perhaps that what is written down in my family tree is in error somehow. Perhaps one or two, but this is ridiculous. In the DNA matches with other people, I somehow acquired a 1st or 2nd cousin. I knew he wasn't a 1st cousin. I was definitely sure he was not a 2nd cousin. I contacted him and asked if he had any Scandinavian roots or family from the British Isles. No, he did not.

    I am very angry and ticked off at AncestryDNA. This has been an absolutely expensive waste of my time and money.

  16. By the time the tubes arrive at the laboratory, there would be so many germs in it that the test results would show the ancestry of the germs instead!

  17. 23 and me is a waste of money. You get Wikipedia-quality information about your ethnic group. Nothing remotely personal. It’s a scam.

  18. Ancestry DNA was the most accurate according to what I knew about my family. It also assigned me to the correct communities: East Central Louisiana Acadians and Louisiana Creole’s and African Americans. There are also many other cool tools on that site. 23 and me was confusing and very vague. Heritage DNA didn’t make sense about my family and compared to Ancestry DNA. If you’re going to choose one, I recommend AncestryDNA.

  19. Could a grandfather, the father of a female who had a child, determine if he is the grandfather of said grand child? What if the daughter is missing and deceased? Was he actually the father of the deceased female? Maybe these tests are accurate for other reasons. Please help me explain why these test can determine ancestry, but one generation can not determine grand parentage.

  20. go to https://support.ancestry.com/s/ancestrydna theres a special this month on aug until..? for 69.00 dollars

  21. If your wife has a twin sister, and you sleep with her, is it really cheating since genetically they are the same person?

  22. and yet other source says otherwise Consumer protection groups are warning residents across Western Australia
    that packages containing DNA testing kits are part of an international mail scam. and this i believe it's all a scam

  23. Myheritage is the worst test I've ever taken, well and myfamilytree. Both don't have enough samples, cluster ethnicities too much and either skip any unidentified DNA or puts in a group of unidentified. Unidentified is much better. I'd say ancestry picks ups Jewish DNA better and 23 and me is better at something but I forgot what. I wanna do one more test some time. I hope my comment helps those who are trying to get DNA tested.

  24. One result says : Middle-East, the other result says : North-African.
    Those results are not the same since the Berber genetic profile is not the same as the semite genetic profile.
    If you want to know more : https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0192269
    It seems north-africans are not arabs but arabized people. So genetically talking north-africans ≠ middle-easterns.
    ( If you want to talk also about arab invasion, you could as well talk about the phoenicians, the sub-saharans, the byzantines, the ottomans, the vandals, the french and so on…)

  25. the most phoney co.is 123 and me
    lie ahhh sir
    whoever will trust something,based on what you say and not what we ve seen?
    where are the proofs,,lie ahh
    my 3 dna test done by 123 and me/my heritage and family tree dna.were different
    so..i do not trust!

  26. So are they Middle Eastern or North American? It misleads depending on what brand test you get the result might be very different

  27. Cool, cool. So the FBI now has their DNA on file and the companies have full ownership of their genome which allows them to clone them. Cool, cool.

  28. I had one DNA test done with 23 and me. I was totally shocked. So I went to Yale New Haven Lab and had a DNA test done. We have breast cancer prevalent in our family. I didn’t have the gene. I was so happy. But both tests told me that. They both picked up on Chinese and Melanesia. I used to visit the Cherokee Reservation near Luray, Virginia. I knew that I was Native American but not 42%. I never knew about Germany either. You have to be ready when you do these tests. The results can destroy families. Secrets. There are five of us. We are all full brothers and sisters. The Chinese, German and Melanesia came from my mother. On my paternal side they are African American, Native American, Irish, English. My brother and sisters Native American % is not as high as mine. Be careful of what you wish for. I asked my parents were there any secrets to tell and they told me no. They were surprised by some of the ancestry that was found.

  29. Third one wasn't right scandanavian DNA and English DNA are very similar you have to be careful about British DNA you see genuine British DNA is Welsh they are true Britons the English are modern British but don't have accent British DNA they are Germanics in origin this is a general mistake

  30. This is only works in America, i think. I know my family – can trace back to both sides 500 or 600 years. My family been in the same town same street for 250 years.
