[TI] DNA for Genealogy - again

I was steered in the direction of 23andme which was highly touted. My wife
gave me this for Christmas. It costs $99. To be honest, it didn't tell me
anything beyond what I already know: I am of predominantly Mediterranean
blood. Other than that, they give you a worthless number on how much
Neanderthal you have in you, which for me was the overall average of around 2
percent, as if I cared, and that my roots waaaayyyy back go to East Asia, as
many of Eureopean heritage do.

I understand there are more precise DNA tests than this one, and if you are
truly interested, I would check them out. I believe we are talking in the
range of $400 for these tests.

I sent this message using HTML so it probably didn't go through.   So here
it is again using plain text.

I know that in the past there have been some discussion on this list about
the different types of DNA tests that can be done for genealogy.  I am
contemplating doing this and am wondering if those of you have done this
might share your experiences.  Which test did you do?  What did you find
out?  Was it worth the expense?

Things have been pretty quiet on the TI list and thought maybe this might
stimulate some discussion again.

I was at a dinner party last night and met a woman whose grandfather was
from Termini Imerese. . . . Small world.  We seem to be everywhere!

Hope everyone is doing well.  I¹m looking forward to seeing at least some of
you in September at the reunion in St. Louis.
