    It's just entertainment, not accurate, and depends on their databases and mathematical models, which are constantly changing.
    It's a guess.

    Crazy. I think they got my dogs dna right though. That’s more important.

    My sister did our family history the old fashioned way through genealogy. Actually published two hardback books about it for distribution to the family.
    I won't do it, but just wonder if the current DNA tests would back up or dispute her findings. (nobody famous in our history)

    With what is qualifying as famous these days, that's probably a good thing.

    My brother had DNA checked with 3 different services.
    All 3 were different.
    I agree with the OP.

    I know of someone that is big into ancestry. They got themselves and their spouse, plus their children, DNA kits for Christmas.

    I'm thinking WTF!

    If you know you and your spouses ancestry through DNA and you are both the biological parents of your children, why would your children need to have their DNA checked???

    I asked them why they would also pay to have their childrens DNA tested and they just looked at me with a blank look on their face like "Why wouldn't we?".

    I took the conversation no further.

    There are some serious family secrets being uncovered through these inexpensive tests. You can share your info across multiple vendors and if a cousin, sibling, parent etc. also does BAM!
