    Same here, my daughter wanted me to do the DNA thing with 23&me for medical reasons. My grandmother on Mom's side is 1/2 native American, white farther, Indian mother. My DNA came back with just a trace of native American, mostly European. Waste of money.

    You guys should read "Next" by Michael Crichton. It's all about DNA testing and what not

    Nothing like just sending your DNA to some fly by night outfit and hoping it doesn't end up in the wrong hands.

    i've had more luck tracking down branches of the family tree by responding to an email meant for someone else with a similar address (initial and same last name). I had gotten them off and on for a while, but the one about 'being picked up at the airport' seemed important enough to respond to and let the person know it didn't reach the recipient.

    Turns out, the sender was the descendant of my great grandfather's brother.

    My sister and mom did our family history the old fashioned way. Courthouse records, birth certs, contacting family members and grave stone pics. Nothing special in our history.

    Evidently everyone is very interested in their heritage and history and certainly not at all trying to get some govt $.

    The DNA test will only tell you if you are Native American but not which tribe. It isn't that sophisticated yet. I also don't think tribes take a DNA test as proof to join the tribe/nation.
