Living DNA results
« on: Thursday 22 November 18 15:55 GMT (UK) »
My LivingDNA results are in today and to say I am underwhelmed is an understatement.

'Keep Fishing! We haven't caught you any matches yet. Finding new relatives means fishing for them in many databases. Spread the word and help turn this fishing pond into an ocean of new matches.'

So, you could say I am expressing my disappointment, or you could say I am spreading the word. Take it whichever way you want to.

I'm in the same boat as you :-)

Got all excited as it told me I was selected for the next beta phase, so signed in when I got home, and no matches at all....


Did you look at the example 'tree' though ?  Bottom row shows a Monty Sanford, with a ladies picture saying the predicted relationship is Grandfather !!!! doesn't bode well

Think I'm glad that I withdrew my data a while ago.

Same thing happened to me.  I received a notification that my results were in.

I had taken the LivingDNA test some time ago and then uploaded my raw Ancestry file a month ago and lo and behold, LivingDNA had one match.  Me!
But I (we) only match at the 98.47% level which they say is an identical twin!

You have to chuckle.

Can you explain why? It's not really helping LivingDNA for you to encourage people to do so.

Why?

The reasons are given on  another (earlier)  thread - maybe Sept/Oct.

Melba - I don't discourage other people to withdraw or not submit. Living DNA are doing it all by themselves. This thread is an example.

I think you are being rather rude and are clearly not reading all the discussions about Living DNA on here.

As an example, you could have read the  other comments on this and other threads - e.g. from Margaret:

'Keep Fishing! We haven't caught you any matches yet. Finding new relatives means fishing for them in many databases. Spread the word and help turn this fishing pond into an ocean of new matches.'
