    Question My True Ancestry

    Is this site trustworthy?

    I'm not asking about how accurate it is, just whether or not it can be trusted with my data.

    I've been wondering the same thing. I'm curious, but I'm not interested in submitting my data to something that could be shady.

    Those are my sentiments. It sounds interesting, but there is no "About Us" link, which makes me wonder.

    It's a Swiss based organization correct? That country does have a strong reputation for privacy and anonymity, especially in banking

    Considering all the academic credentials they’re throwing around, how come there isn’t a single name tied to any of those degrees?


    Plus, you can basically do the same thing yourself, with G25.


    Closest distances

    1 Hungary_Medieval_Szolad:SZ38: 2.371200
    2 England_Roman:6DT22: 2.47192
    3 Sweden_Viking_Age_Sigtuna:vik_grt035: 2.484472
    4 England_Roman:3DT16: 2.488375
    5 Italy_Medieval_Collegno:CL84: 2.614464
    6 Scotland_LBA:I2859: 2.875004
    7 England_Anglo-Saxon:HS3-I0161: 2.895549
    8 Hungary_Medieval_Szolad:SZ42: 2.906486
    9 Beaker_Bavaria:I6590: 2.909576
    10 England_MBA:I2458: 2.947305
    11 Italy_Medieval_Collegno:CL83: 2.981315"
    12 Czech_EBA:I7196: 3.039571


    And even then, you’re really just matching similar population backgrounds. For example, my closest fit SZ38, was modeled in the Lombard paper as being approximately: 90% GBR & CEU 8% Tuscan & 2% Finnish. Whereas, I’m approximately: 88% GBR, 6% Italian & 6% Prussian/German (which is often partially reported as Scandinavian by the commercial companies). So there’s no surprise SZ38 is my closest match. Same goes with the Roman Gladiators, who were like the modern day Welsh, according to the paper and etc ...

    Their packaging is pretty nice but personally, I wouldn’t pay them anything.

    Thus far it's free, isn't it? Or am I mistaken about that? I haven't delved that far into it.

    They allow you an initial taste for free but then they have a series of more “in depth” services that they charge you varying levels for. Which are considerably over priced in my opinion. So if you have no concerns about sending them your raw data, you can get the free sample results and then decide what you want to do from there.

    It might be fun, but I wouldn't be willing to spend much. My ancestry is overwhelmingly British and Irish, and we know not a lot has changed with that since the Kurgan Bell Beaker people shook things up starting around 2400 BC.

    Lately things have been going really well on the personal genealogy front for me, and that is of far greater interest to me than ancient stuff.
