Is it accurate for Ancestry.com customers? Especially wondering predictions of people having dark eyes.

I got Brown eyes, and had my test with 23andme, and looks quite accurate for me.

Yeah 23andMe V3 predictions're pretty spot on. This's mine: http://www.abload.de/img/dfgjauap0po25.png

I don't have much data on V4, I assume it's not as accurate as V3 for everyone, but mostly spot on. Kits I tried got dark eyes mainly, which sounds accurate. FTDNA results're garbage told me blue eyed. I don't have any data on Ancestry.com

I only have my dna data from Ancestry. I'm not impressed with it, but I don't know how accurate it's supposed to be. I'll compare it when I use 23andMe.

Neither 23andme nor FTDNA gave the correct eye color for me. One gave me amber eyes, the other a somewhat greenish yellow. Mine are dark brown.

I didn't test at Ancestry, but I have very dark eyes. Nearly black. My 23andme v4 chip and FTDNA last I looked on GEDmatch eye color (it's been awhile) showed some kind of weird yellow color for me. My mom's turned up correct with brown. She is on v3 chip.

In looking at the new website for 23andme today, they tell me I have a 65% chance of having darker eyes compared to other customers with European ancestry. The other Europeans have 32% likelihood of darker eyes.

You need to use a 3rd party image hosting website, or just upload it via attachment on the forum. If you just post an image directly from Gedmatch it's gonna be removed by Gedmatch in a few hours to save bandwith.

@Kiln
sorry for the stupid question but are your eyes green or brown? at first I thought it's brown but on a second thought it kinda looks light eye, I'm not sure from that picture.

Yes, when I just went into firemonkey's first post it is the Gedmatch site. Good to know about the bandwith.

I'm not sure either.

Depends on the light.

Brown with blue around the edge, blue seems to come through only in brighter light.

Difficult to take a picture of your own eye.

I have the same eye colour (pred. dark mixed with some light, personally consider that to be a variant of hazel) as Abd.H and Mamluk (see here (http://www.anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?1057-DMXX-s-Eye-Colour-Project-(v-2)&p=9321&viewfull=1#post9321)). Similar GEDmatch colour prediction as well.

In looking at the new website for 23andme today, they tell me I have a 65% chance of having darker eyes compared to other customers with European ancestry. The other Europeans have 32% likelihood of darker eyes.

I went back to gedmatch and checked. This is the FTDNA results:
AC at: rs4778241 - High Melanin. Adds yellow, amber, or brown. Some darkening. Contributes Amber, Brown.
CC at: rs3794604 - Blocks some melanin. Often gives light colored eyes.
GG at: rs7174027 - Blocks some melanin. Often gives light colored eyes.
CC at: rs9782955 - Blocks some melanin. Often gives light colored eyes.
CT at: rs1129038 - Adds Yellow.
CT at: rs3935591 - Heavy melanin on Anterior Epithelium. Brown.
CC at: rs4779685 - Flecks (Nevi).
AG at: rs11634406 - Flecks (Nevi).

The "Heavy melanin" was the winner :P ; the picture with these results gives me light yellow/greenish eyes. Mine are dark brown.

This was the v4 chip for 23andme data at gedmatch:
AC at: rs4778241 - High Melanin. Adds yellow, amber, or brown. Some darkening. Contributes Amber, Brown.
CC at: rs1847134 - Deep Brown
CC at: rs3794604 - Blocks some melanin. Often gives light colored eyes.
GG at: rs7174027 - Blocks some melanin. Often gives light colored eyes.
CC at: rs9782955 - Blocks some melanin. Often gives light colored eyes.
AA at: rs1393350 - Brown
CT at: rs989869 - Contrasting sphincter around pupil.
CT at: rs1129038 - Adds Yellow.
AA at: rs4778138 - Weak Amber Gradient
CT at: rs1667394 - Medium melanin production on Anterior Epithelium. Adds yellow, amber, or brown. Some darkening.
CT at: rs916977 - Adds melanin. Adds yellow, amber, or brown.
GG at: rs16891982 - Starburst (Collarette)
CC at: rs12203592 - No pigmented Collarette.

This one was a light caramel color. At least it was shade of brown, but mine are actually much darker.

23andme says that I have a 65% chance of having darker eyes, my color is broken down into 27% dark brown. But the chart for European ancestry customers says only 32% darker eyes.

Think this shows that there are many genes that influence eye color. My mother has blue eyes and both of her parents had blue eyes, which would give me quite a few alleles that were not expressed. My dad had the dark brown eyes; his mother had light brown, and her brothers had either blue or gray. I blame the brown on my paternal grandfather--he had the dark brown eyes!
