in early October 2008-I believe

...I think I was either the first kit or one of the first kits processed after the big price drop years ago ( from $1,000+ to 500ish) as it was my sample they first found L21 in (or recognized its significance perhaps)

I just got the email giving me my # and I think its cool they kept track of that

Mike

(edit)
PS-someone asked when we tested...I have no records of it as it was so long ago...I did visit my 23&Me site and could not find the exact date, but I did some searching and found someone sent me my first 'share data' request on Nov 25 2008...so I am guessing I got the results in early Nov. 2008-dang that seems a long time ago

PPS-a bit more research I found the old posts on Rootsweb-Geniology DNA forum where folks asked how L21 was discovered and I (and the other guys) got our results in October of 2008

23andMe
June 2015

Gerard,

Last week, we genotyped our one millionth customer. You are part of the one million people driving change.

One million is more than a number. It's a turning point. We are taking control of our data. We are taking ownership of information about ourselves. We believe knowing more about who we are can benefit society, not just the individual.

Just fifty years ago, doctors were reluctant to tell patients if they had cancer.1 The world is different today.

One million customers ago, attendees were shocked at the annual American Society of Human Genetics conference when direct-to-consumer genetic testing services were announced.2

One million customers ago, we didn't know how consumers would react to direct-to-consumer testing, but now there are studies showing consumers don't overreact to their results.3

One million customers ago, we didn't have the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act in the United States or other personal data protection laws that are now in place in many countries around the globe.

One million customers ago, we didn't have direct access to our health laboratory results. The United States recently mandated individuals can get laboratory test results directly from the laboratory upon request.4

As customer number 23,423, you are part of this unique group of one million people driving change. I celebrate you, your 23andMe story and the power of all of us today: #PowerOf1Million.

You'll often overhear me enthusiastically telling people to "Spit!" but today is the day to be proud and let everyone know: "I Spat!"

Onward.

sorry your so bitter about the testing you did and not getting what you wanted from it, but you are quite wrong about these tests being useless

again, as just a small example..
the geno 2 test, while not a world beater, still got me a much better resolution for my MTdna side and the STR tests were critical in not only finding my NPE family, but in recognizing a single STR that is cheap to buy a la carte and is a guaranteed lock to mean someone comes from this line

its one thing paulgill, to say you found one of the tests useless, that is fair enough, but its just trolling to fundamentally declare 23&Me, FTDNA STR and Geno 2 tests to be worthless and useless for everyone else

There are plenty of times my Natgeno2 results have saved money for me in regards to ftdna tests..........all I do is see ALL my positive and negative tested SNP and advise ftdna that Natgeno2 already tested me for this and it was negative.............they scan my natgeno2 transfer and then manually update my ftdna tree

All tests by all companies have some value

Currently Natgeno2 is still the only company that has me correctly marker of both ydna and mtdna trees ( current trees is what I refer to )

23andMe had my Y-J1-P58, Mt-H14a, and Geno 2.0 Y-J1-P58-Z1853*, Mt-H14 and two years later they changed their H14 to H14a. I repeatedly asked FTDNA to change my H14 to H14a and they won't, instead they have my J1-Z1853* now changed to J1-Z1865. FTDNA does not have a Y tree, is has a mess. Again J1-Z1853* TMRA is 7388-5877 ybp, hardly helpful in any way. This is J1 tree http://genogenea.com/J-M267/tree, now compare it to FTDNA one, you be shoked, I bet.

Like MikeWhalen, I was among the early L21 kits; I remember submitting my Y raw results through some long-forgotten mailing list and being the 6th or so kit to confirm the new haplogroup. It was really exciting at the time to have a large amount of new raw data to comb through - much like we're seeing again now with the NGS data.

I wish I had the kind of money today that I had back then! My 23andMe test was ~$400 at the time, but I didn't have kids then and had a lot more disposable income. Now I'm saving up for a BigY or Y Elite test.

Wasn't the price higher back then? Or, perhaps they raised the price. I placed my order 1/24/10 and the price was $499.

The BIG Y is another joke, $450 or $475 when it first came out, year and a half back for $ 375 to $399 on sale, regular now for $575 without mtDNA data and right now on sale 15% off for $388.75, while Full Genomes WGS 10x at $650.00.

With the sale, it's currently at $488.75. If it were $388.75, I'd probably order it today!

I've seen a reference to being able to get the FGC WGS for $650, but I'm not clear on whether or not that would provide as much Y info as the current Y Elite which goes for $750. Do you have any info about that? Kind of off topic, so feel free to PM me instead of replying here.

A worthless test.
As Mjost said it all depends on what you need .23 and me is worth as it is just $99 and you get your basic ydna mtdna and autosomal DNA and that's what many customers need .
Geno 2.0 was brought in 2012. At that time it was a quite good test who were more interested in uniparental markers .I got what what I needed from them .They got my Y haplogroup right at R-L657 which was good at that time.Also from the mtdna data they gave I got the exact subclade I am in and even collected few others data with same mtdna line which helped me in further resolution.

As of know I find it worthless to spend on higher resolution Y tests on a personal level. I have nothing to gain knowing what deeper subclade I am in . But I would love to order it for contributing for population genetics when I have enough to spare .

For a number of people 23andme is definitely worth it, and for $99 it looks to be a no-brainer. I recommend it, even though I have to admit in my case I did not get much from it. I already knew I was R1a1 and U2b2 from FTDNA so nothing was gained from 23andme on that. On the autosomal front simple codis markers predicted I was from Uttar Pradesh area with a mixture between Dravidians and Europeans. As yet, no analysis I have seen using 23andme data has shown anything different.

23andMe is $199 at this time and if one doesn't live in USA then the S&H is very high. It is not that these tests cost too much, the problem is when you buy it in pieces it ends up costing more than the WGS while one gets only a fraction of the data.

If you download your 14500 positive and negatives SNP from natgeno2 test and keep them handy, you will still find them useful as a reference to match other companies/sources who create new branches .

As for me, natgeno2 already had found 3 negative SNP years ago, .............. 9 months ago other sources noted these markers as further downstream from my positive CTS8862. Result, I already know they are negative.

Here are my stat's in my group, I was the first test, late 2008, after 23andme was named the Invention of the Year by Time and was featured on Oprah. My results posted in January 2009. My test cost $399 plus shipping. I haven't tallied all I've spent with 8 profiles, w/upgrades, at 23andme, 6 tested at FTDNA (2 Y, 2 mtdna, 2 Factoids, and 6 FF), and 4 AncestryDNA tests...but I don't regret a single dime. Plus I'd have to add a few years of Ancestry.com subscriptions, oh, and I *had* 2 DeCODEme accounts, too. Come to think of it, I used to be US57 in Davidski's Eurogenes project, my husband US58, and my mother-in-law was PL9, and I've uploaded my DNA results on Opensnp and my FMS on Genbank. I'm still waiting for my Genes For Good result...ok, I think I do need DNA rehab!

I think paullgill's confusion comes from the fact that Canadians are defaulted to Health and Ancestry at $199 CAD (with no option to buy Ancestry only unless they purchase through the US store), while in the US, the Health component is still unavailable thanks to the meddling of the FDA, and so only the Ancestry portion is available at a discounted $99 USD. The UK store (https://www.23andme.com/en-gb/) also offers both Health and Ancestry, but at £125 GBP (approx. $199 USD).

But International Shipping (i.e. to Canada) is also an added expense, and was $60 CAD extra for FEDEX when I bought the test back in 2009-05-06. (I'm #17,766)

So paulgill is correct, that if one lives in Canada, $199 + $60 shipping is a somewhat poor investment when you only get 602,000 SNPs out of the deal.

Then again, NGS's Geno2 wasn't a very good investment either, and I ought to have simply saved my money for the penultimate $1850 USD WGS test offered by Full Genomes Corp. Hindsight's a bitch, man.

But International Shipping (i.e. to Canada) is also an added expense, and was $60 CAD extra for FEDEX when I bought the test back in 2009-05-06. (I'm #17,766)

So paulgill is correct, that if one lives in Canada, $199 + $60 shipping is a somewhat poor investment when you only get 602,000 SNPs out of the deal.

Then again, NGS's Geno2 wasn't a very good investment either, and I ought to have simply saved my money for the penultimate $1850 USD WGS test offered by Full Genomes Corp. Hindsight's a bitch, man.

Ok. This is the last I'm going to say on the topic of its value in this thread, but it's worth noting that it's incorrect to imply that 23andme is "discounted" at $99 in the US because of the FDA's meddling. They had permanently dropped the price to $99 before they had trouble with the FDA, and back when they still tested 967,000 SNPs.

So in summation:

-23andme is $199 CAD. It is $99 USD.
-Paulgill once again comes into a thread to remind us that he thinks a certain DNA test is useless/worthless/garbage.

Ahhh, I remember back in the old DNA-Forums days, when "Warwick" was doing some heavy searching during a genome sharing glitch ... he discovered that my HLA region was a near perfect match to "Lilly Mendel", whom he happened to know was none other than 23andMe co-founder Linda Avey. And then informed both of us.

No reason to worry, right, that:
- her former partner is married to one of the most successful men in Silicon Valley, if not the world.
- men named Sergey *never* have ties to the eastern European mafia or the black market, IRL.
- "Live Organ Transplants" is the name of a Monty Python sketch, nothing else.

It is not 199 Canadian dollars, it is $199 US. It costs more than $300 Canadian including S&H. Is it wrong to express one's opinion? Don't you express your own opinion here?

Just clearing this bit up for our member paulgill;


Is it wrong to express one's opinion? Don't you express your own opinion here?

The problem here is that comments such as "a worthless test." don't directly contribute to the thread's purpose (members sharing their number out of the million) and don't provide any meaningful material to form a constructive tangent (unlike "This test has been worthless for me because..."). Your reasoning was teased out by other posters, but the prima facie connotations initially render comments like that as devoid of substance.

In short, it's entirely to do with that lack of substance and the distraction from the thread's purpose than it is about the place for your opinion (which is as valid as mine, and actually ended up being valid after prompting by others, as far as I'm concerned). Had there been an explanation from the get-go, a member of staff wouldn't have had an unfavourable disposition towards it. [Edit]: Probably best to just let this tangent slide now.

Canadian sign appears only if one clicks on the order tab, on the first page there is no such information, these companies generally price there products in US dollars as they are based in USA, so the mistake was made.
