    It's too hard to get a decent photo of my own eye.

    Best I can do but the colour isn't really right, the brown in the middle is present but nowhere near as dominant as in the pic, probably having to use flash didn't help ?

    Not close; I have dark brown eyes and gedmatch doesn't come close with either FTDNA data or 23andme. Gedmatch gives me two shades of yellow/amber

    My father's pale green was accurate .............my mid green was wrong ....it gave me blue ( like all testing companies state I should have .

    my grandson blue is the same as his father and my younger son


    my older son and my wife both have the same mid blue ..........just all blue , no shades aor anything else


    so , they where correct with all bar myself ,
    I might have a glitch in my DNA if all companies say I should have blue


    My Path = ( K-M9+, TL-P326+, T-M184+, L490+, M70+, PF5664+, L131+, L446+, CTS933+, CTS3767+, CTS8862+, Z19945+, BY143483 )

    I think there's probably more alleles involved than are tested for at the moment. My mother has blue eyes, both her parents had blue eyes. My paternal grandmother had light brown. My father and his father were the ones with the dark brown eyes that I inherited, but obviously have a lot of other alleles involved in eye color that weren't expressed. I know my dad was heterozygous for brown, since my youngest sister has hazel green eyes. My children's father has blue eyes, but my son has the dark brown while my daughter's are very blue.

    How many rules do you have for this evaluation?


    I have other examples where gedmatch indicates blue eyes while they are brown.
    I think the lack of results of some markers wrongly gives light eyes
