What kind of a moron switches babies at birth? How hard is it to make sure the baby is in the right crib? And this is known to have happened a lot! The nurse that did it should be tar and feathered. Probably stressing over the crying, I worked at a hospital and it seemed every nurse did nothing but complain about how stressed they were. Why not go be something else if you cant handle what your doing, instead of switching babies and such....

I had my DNA tested and I regret it. How is all the information that is collected on all people around the world protected? Do world governments, police departments like FBI , INTERPOL etc and all police departments have access to DNA? People have now voluntarily given all their information. Who will protect?

My brother sent off for the DNA search. Almost entirely Scottish/Irish/English. sub Saharan Africa 0.15. My Scottish Great Grandfather would deny this. I consider it on a 1 to 100,000 scale as a negative 1000. In other word s who cares, I still have blue eyes, red hair and Nordic colored skin. Told my wife who is from the deep south and her response was the same as mine. MEH

I was always told growing up that on my Dad's side of the family, we were French-Canadian, Native American and possibly Irish or Scottish, with a dash a German. My Aunt did a DNA test and found out we aren't Native American but Iberian. It definitely explained the olive complexion I share with my dad and our light green eyes. Go figure.

Humans have been messing around since the caveman discovered the man in the next cave was away. Early American plantation owners had a belief that if a women was frightened by a male house slave during the night her baby would be black so the male slaves were prohibited in the house until after the birth. We now know that many of those plantation wives really liked their male house slaves.

Let’s get one thing straight and crystal clear, even though the leaders, rulers and chiefs of some different Native tribes, mostly Cherokee went to England, their families and their people staid behind in Cherokee Nation, USA but went back to their sacred homelands and never married in the white man’s countries. In 1492, Christopher Columbus was a evil tyrannical dictator and a criminal invading thug who trespassed on the Bahamas and Hispaniola, not North America.

First of all, DNA is nothing more than a fraudulent and criminal act to deceptively lie to you and mislead you in every way shape and form. I am mostly Cherokee through both of my parents families, but unlike most people, if not, all of the people in the world, I research the truth about my family, not mythological legends and fantasy fairytales. Now, as far as the dna goes, dna doesn’t prove anything about you, me or anyone else, because dna is 100% inaccurate and dna is deceptively misleading to all. I suggest that anyone who is interested in and enthusiastic about your true family history, forget about dna, because dna doesn’t do anything for you, but instead research the truth and facts about your family and their ancestors through documentations instead and take pride in it which is exactly what I’m doing. I have great and wise Native American friends who I am honored to have as friends who told me and taught me not to look to dna for answers, but to look to and to research family documents based on truthful and factual information and not to trust anyone, not even Ancestry who is owned, run and funded by the Mormons and their Satanic religious occult, especially if they aren’t your family and don’t claim something that you aren’t without researching the truth. Now I am passing down their truthful knowledge and great wisdom to you.

I am 50% Swedish, coming from my maternal grandparents who immigrated to Canada from Sweden. I am 25% Norwegian, coming from my paternal grandmother who immigrated to Canada from Norway, and 25% Misc. European coming from my paternal grandfather. My first run through with Ancestry DNA was pretty close to these percentages. Then Ancestry DNA did an update, which wasn't anything close to my first run through. 55% Norwegian and 45% Swedish. So inaccurate that they cannot be reliable at all.

the concept of judaism and people who call themselves jews really bothers me....in a mild way.... judaism, to me, is a religion. it is not a race. there is no country named jew. in my mind, if you do not/did not practice the jewish religion or your family did not, then you are not jewish. does that make sense? i respect the feelings and heritage of those who consider themselves as being jewish, but i don't understand the basis for it if they do not/did not practice the religion. peace.

I don't think we should take the results of these DNA testing companies very seriously. Mine for example reported that I was likely to have brown eyes, be bald and that my great toe would be longer than my second toe- all of these and many others reported are untrue. It also said that I'm 73% Jewish but the same company reported that my sister is 85% Jewish. So, clearly they had be be wrong with at least one of us.

It's come out recently that these DNA companies are allowing government to search their data base for criminal cases and medical research. You can bet the government has your DNA on file now. Totally illegal to obtain without a search warrant. Read your contract carefully with these companies. You can hold them accountable for releasing the info. That is until they sell the company to some one else, at that point all contracts become null and void.

My family had DNA tests done. We knew about the French, German and Irish but what surprised me was that we have some Italian in our ancestry. Trying to figure out where that Italian came from since my mom hasn't found any paper trail about the Italian DNA.
Stas M (10 days ago)
I grew up with ENTIRE family always gossiping about how I wasn’t my father’s. I was whiter than my brother and sister and my hair was different. I look like a complete different offspring from them basically. I look more like my mom, but that’s not to say I look that much like her either. So I spent my life kind of distant from them (my dad’s side). I couldn’t really relate to my paternal cousins because I felt like deeply they weren’t my cousins and I just felt out of place. Plus my personality was so different from theirs—I liked English and art they liked math and science. They were all extremely extroverted and I was so extremely introverted. As much as my mom told me everyone was wrong, I couldn’t believe her. Even my half-sister told me my mom was having an affair around the time I was conceived, which my mom still strongly denies. Fast forward 22 years, I decide to take a DNA test once and for all and my dad’s mother and my aunt (my dad’s sister) took one at the same time as me coincidentally. And guess what? We almost had identical results. You wouldn’t believe how surprised my aunts were. And my mom started laughing. I was kinda disappointed. Like at that point you almost want them to be right. Oh well.

Reminds me of when I was working for the NHS many years ago. A hospital in Bristol had a new genetics lab opened, the most advanced in the EU at the time. So to celebrate they were offering free paternity tests to anyone on the maternity wing of the hospital, together with a "certificate" of fatherhood (yes it was gimmicky). After less than a month they were told to stop offering them, because almost 60%(!) of the couples taking up the offer found that the "father" was not the biological father, and this was destroying families before they had a chance to start! And this is 60% of the couples actually agreeing to take the test, a mother who suspects the baby may not be her partner's would surely come up with an excuse not to take the test. So this meant that OVER 60% of the women going through that maternity ward were unfaithful to their partners. This was many years ago, but I can only imagine that nothing has changed, and that there is no reason to think women in this area were more unfaithful than any other. So with the increased popularity of these tests, and reducing costs, we are in for some BIG shocks and break-ups down the line.
