    Yes, I tested twice once back in 2004 and a second time more recently as they added quite a lot of extra markers. They are one of the two firms who founded in 2000 (within days of each other) and still base their operations around an STR matching database...

    How accurate were their results for you?
    My paper trail: 50% Italian, 25% French Canadian, 12.5% English, 12.5% Scottish.

    Depends what measure you use. My ft37 STR test is 85% false positive. I can provide that figure from those who have also done a SNP test and display the result but you can't do that at OA who only test STRs. I have no reason to doubt the actual STR values themselves of course. 26 STRs in R-M222 is very uninformative. Same can be said of 37 and 67 too though.

    I think you will find they have ceased trading.

    No they have not ceased trading. I can order their Y str kit without problems.

    They did talk about stopping a while ago then changed their mind.

    I used them in 2005 as I wanted to find out if I was Celt or Viking.
