Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Different DNA Test, Different Results
« on: Tuesday 29 August 17 18:59 BST (UK)  »
I just now saw that Mr Casey, just above me on this forum, has Ellison in his family tree.  My maiden name was Ellison.  Furthest back is John Ellison born in PA and moved to Green and Cocke Co's, TN.
I have tested at FTDNA and was gifted a 23 and Me kit and then I took my raw data to My Heritage.  Most of the results are fairly close to one another except for a few things, like the amount of Scandinavian, Iberian or trying to place the odd bits that I have in my DNA.  I've seen Middle East, North Africa, Near East and 23 and Me put me in West Africa, which surprised me.  DNA Land just was honest and said, well for about 6 or 7% of you, we haven't a clue!  :D  None of the major admixture surprises me and it's the odd bits that fascinate me the most.  I'm happy to not be 100% European and wishing I had that crystal ball to see my deep ancestry and find out just what those odd bits are for sure.  AND I must say, if I'd never done DNA for my paternal aunt, one of our family mysteries never would have been solved.  I'm happy I spent my money on doing my DNA and the DNA of a few relatives.
