My husband & I decided to begin our genealogy research with DNA tests before signing up to do more research. Eagerly anticipating the results, we were totally disappointed to see such generic results that could have applied to millions of others.
There were no real breakdowns (i.e. England, Scotland, Wales all lumped together, etc). The "pie chart" so prominent in their tv advertising is a joke - can't even print it out. Then there's the matter of the "ethnicity" printed below our "dna results".
There's no correlation between these two "reports", nor is there any references or explanations on how to interpret them. What's even more confusing (or should I say improbable) is that both mine & my husband's "ethnicity" are absolutely identical.
Now how is that possible? Of course, can't get thru to anyone at Ancestry for help - does that sound like SCAMMED?
