    Question for French people/part French people who have taken 23andme

    How many dna relatives from France do you actually match with on 23andme? I'm curious considering dna testing is semi illegal in France supposedly so I can't imagine there'd be a lot of potential relatives. Would appreciate French responses but also people who are part French, French Canadian, etc.

    But French are on myheritage.
    Myheritage has even advertised on French television while testing is prohibited.
    So this law is not really taken seriously.

    Not many, I am in the process of counting them. But suffice to say they are largely overwhelmed by American matches, as well as matches from people that represent a smaller percentage of my ancestry (Ashkenazi Jews by the hundreds for only 6.25% of my ancestry and a lot of Germans for only 12.5% of my ancestry).
