    So what's the overall verdict on the app? Any good? Has anyone found a list of their expanded regions?

    I ordered this test with the last upgrade of regions and populations, it takes between half hour and one hour.

    For me, the results aren't bad (I expected it worse because of people comments...). As a negative point and in my case, this test has overestimated the percentage of Western Asia... although it could be because this component is old (Antiquity)... maybe, all percentages make references to ancient genome...

    The report offers a list of results with expanded regions and another list with reference populations.

    There are better tests, but in my opinion it isn't bad.

    So, since I'm obviously a sucker for these things, and it's fairly cheap, I decided to go for it. Some interesting, but kind of weird results. Although I got some Ashkenazi percentage, it looks like a lot of my Jewish side got broken up between the Middle East, Southern Europe and North Africa. Still, I have no idea how I got assigned such a huge Italian percentage. That must have come from something on my father's side that got really south-shifted, kind of like what dna.land does to me.

    Paper trail:

    Father = 50% English (early American settlers), 25% Dutch, 12.5% Danish, 8% German + some Irish, Scottish and French

    Mother = 75% Ashkenazi Jewish (Russia/Ukraine) and 25% Sephardic (Turkey)

    It's fast. It only takes about 15 minutes or so once you upload your data. I can't say I recommend it for accuracy, but you might try it for kicks. I'm interested to see what it does with Jewish DNA in other customers.

    Already did it ages ago. Have shared my results in the Jewish-Aegean thread.
