DNA test to trace ancestry

Has anyone ever taken a DNA test that gives info about your ancestry and if so, what company did they use and would they recommend them,

  • It's not something i would do - the chances of someone realated to you that you don't already know choosing to use this same company are slim to nil. There is so little chance that it's just pointless - better off buying a lottery ticket. I can only see these as money-making scams.

    Also, who else do they sell this information to?

    If you got dragged into a police station and DNA tested and forced to hand over all your personal information for no reason you'd complain - yet you might be willingly & blindly doing it via facebook and all this ancestry stuff.
