Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Reliability of AncestryDNA via MyHeritage
« on: Thursday 09 July 20 10:16 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

I submitted a DNA test to AncestryDNA a few years back and it has been useful. I also uploaded the results to MyHeritage however there is a vast difference in the results.

AncestryDNA - 56% England, Wales & Northwestern Europe (predominantly the Midlands) / 44% Ireland

MyHeritage - 65% Irish, Scottish & Welsh, 29.5% Scandinavian, 4.5% North African and 1% Nigerian!

Am I missing something? Is MyHeritage not particularly reliable?

Hi all,

I have been a Member of Ancestry for some years now and have built up a reasonable tree, along with completing and uploading DNA tests/data to assist.

I have hit a point now where I feel I have so much information that I don't know what to do with it.

I have a broken link on my father's Grandfather who was born illegitimately, however I was hoping my DNA results could benefit and assist with this, am I right?

What steps do people take to progress generally? I'd like to put some more meat on the bones rather than just names on a tree.. how can i do this?
