    My (very accurate) Living DNA Rests

    In early November I sent in my Living DNA kit and yesterday (12/18/18) I got my results back.

    I expected them to overestimate my British DNA (according to my paper trail itís around 15-20%), and they did, but not by nearly as much as I thought.

    I think they nailed the percentages a lot better than other companies have. Ancestry DNA hs me at 47% British/NW Europe (I donít like how they group the two together) and 31% Germanic. The rest way Scandinavian and Irish. My paper trail would put me at 70-75% German (mostly south and west).

    I also like how Living DNA includes Y and X Chromosomal DNA. I think itís a great product thatís only improving over time. Eventually theyíll be able to break down my Germanic heritage down to specific regions like they did with my British. Iíd say Ancestry is still a better value, and the way it breaks down migrations is what puts them above the rest. But Living dna did a better job with my percentages.
    Living DNAís accuracy makes me wonder if Living dna looked up what Iíve been posting on forums and looking at my family trees in order to make a more accurate prediction...

    Looks really good.

    I have uploaded my 23andme to Myheritage + FTDNA + Livingdna + Geneplaza + Genecove + DNA.LAND.

    And Livingdna gave me the most accurate. And looking on your test and hearing your family story it looks real good.

    What are the chances that Living DNA cheated and looked at my information from other tests and my family tree? They were too accurate! I am surprised they didn't give me any French or Northern Italian, or even more English.
