    Judging from my matches at myheritage, it seems a lot of French have done a test despite the law.

    The French government is ruled by people not understanding anything about anything really..
    https://www.rfgenealogie.com/s-infor...-durcit-la-loi

    L'Assemblée nationale a même été plus loin en durcissant la loi. Un amendement spécifique a été adopté pour interdire formellement la publicité pour les tests génétiques "récréatifs".

    which means they made the law even more powerful, a specific amendment to the previous law has been voted to strictly forbid advertisments for leisurely dna test
    Yes, I wasn't trying to imply they allowed one type over another. I just wanted to provide the initial reasoning I had read - which is that it was meant to prevent family issues.

    -

    For my matches, 23andme shows me 0 matches currently in France, and only 6 that have one grandparent from France. Myheritage shows me 64 matches currently in France.

    From what I see, even the Normans not really present on AG are numerous on MH and they are close to the law.
    Advertising does its job, yesterday I met during my work, a young woman from Toulouse, who doesn't believe in the results that we see on TV but who still wants to test and asked me how to do and she knows the law and is not stupid. This proves the interest of many French people.
    Recent Ancestry, full Normand. Known Genealogy 7/8 of the Cotentin peninsula 1/8 region of Coutances. Unfortunately, there are many missing branches on the maternal side.

    Looking at MyHeritage, my grandma has more French matches - she just got her closest match anywhere (French match at 0.9%, 61 cMs) although I don't recognize the tree names they have listed. I have 0 French matches on AncestryDNA, I'm only 25% French though:

    My own MyHeritage distribution:

    Maternal grandmother: born in Centre-Val de Loire, France - earliest documented ancestor (1770) Indre, France
    Paternal grandmother: born in the US - earliest documented ancestors (c. 1800) Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Lower Saxony
    Paternal grandfather: born in the US - paternal grandparents born in Danzig (c. 1854), maternal grandparents born in Kolding, Denmark 1875, maternal great grandma born in Lindberg, Sweden 1849

    What are closest matches if you don’t mind me asking? Outside of this recent match, it’s a lot of 0.5% matches at estimated 3rd to 5th cousin range.

    for the French dna how did they chose the reference population, thing is France is more of an illusion than a real united entity genetically..
    French from the south east are different from the bretons and from the basque.. and also the eastern from Alsace and Lorraine are different from the auvergnats, culturally historically etc etc

    apparently the French are more homogenous than some think. I would think there is a discernable genetic difference between people from Marseilles/Cannes region and the Calais/Boulogne-Sur-Mer region. however, it seems that the genetic differences between those two regions is a lot less than the genetic differences between Palermo and Genova, so France does not earn a regular place at the genetically divided table.
