What Can DNA Tests Really Tell Us About Our Ancestry? – Prosanta Chakrabarty

I am glad that TED-Ed did a short informative video on genealogical DNA tests, this is basic information that everyone needs to know about these kind of DNA tests, so that people will know what these tests can and can not tell you about your ancestry et cetera.

DNA Testing Company Caught Working With The FBI

Source: YouTube

Yesterday someone sent me a video by the YouTube channel The Young Turks called DNA Testing Company Caught Working With The FBI:

If this is true then Family Tree DNA lied to me and others, I had my genealogical autosomal DNA test done by Family Tree DNA specifically because they had the best privacy policy out of the big three genealogical DNA testing companies and I wanted to reduce the risk of something like this happening, and so I took a risk finally and I chose them over possibly better options because of their supposed better protections of our DNA / data.

If you are curious here were my results in a post called: John Jr’s Family Tree DNA Family Finder Genealogical DNA Test Results 😲.

Last year I heard about law enforcement using DNA data from one or more DNA testing companies, two of the other big three DNA testing companies claimed to not be involved, but I never heard anyone mention Family Tree DNA so I hoped that they were not involved in that; but if this is true then we were betrayed, and I am not happy about this at all.

If this is true then Family Tree DNA has lost me as a customer over this betrayal, I was cautious and worried about something like this possibly happening so that is why I waited so long before finally taking a risk and trying a DNA test, and I did some research before finally choosing the company with the best privacy policy only to have something like this happen to me.

Thank you The Young Turks for bringing this to our attention.

*Update*

Family Tree DNA released an oddly titled press release about this issue called PRESS RELEASE: CONNECTING FAMILIES AND SAVING LIVES.

If what they are saying is true then the situation is not as bad as reported, but I still have questions and concerns about this situation.

23AndMe Results For My Brother GC?

I had a variety of dreams that I woke up remembering but I did not record them each time, and so now I only barely remember part of two dreams.

Another thing that has possibly impacted my dream recall recently is that I am currently taking some passion flower capsules before going to sleep, I am basically a test subject for my brother GC, he heard that it can help with anxiety and sleep.

Dream 1

This dream possibly took place in a country in The Middle East that was possibly an island, but I can not remember.

I remember sand and maybe there was something about a risk of war and / or something.

At the end of the dream I remember possibly leaving the country in a car that was being driven by a somewhat older man with light-color skin, I remember us talking as he drove, but that is all that I can remember of this dream even though I know that there was more before this.

Dream 2

This dream took place inside a house, the end of the dream involved me being in a room, and my brother GC was in the room as well.

I saw some papers near my brother GC that were genealogical DNA test results from 23AndMe, and so I started looking that the results.

I assumed that they were for my brother GC, and to my surprise his results had more ethnicities showing up than mine did and his percentages were different.

I assumed that 23AndMe results would be different from my results from Family Tree DNA so that was not a surprise, I assumed that some of his percentages would be higher with 23AndMe as well, but I did not expect some of the results.

It showed some ancestors from Spain at about 50% maybe, our ancestors from The United Kingdom percentages were only about 1% different with his being 1% higher than mine, but I can not remember the other ethnic groups / ancestors / nationalities that were represented.

I was not sure if these were really my brother GC results, I just assumed, and so I was going to ask him after I spend more time looking at them and comparing them to my own.

If the results really did belong to my brother GC then it was interesting seeing which groups of ancestors did he possibly inherit genes from, siblings et cetera will not usually get the exact same results because what you do and not inherit can be random so you can have ancestor who will not show up in your results for various reasons, and so being able to see more of our ancestry represented would be nice and to see how our results compare.

The science and everything behind this is not exactly clear-cut or advanced enough or standardized enough yet to go back that far or to be as accurate as we would like, nonsense like race et cetera has really messed up things when it comes to things like this, and many groups are not properly represented in the databases.

But I woke up.

The end,

Angry Joe (Joe Vargas) & Genealogical DNA Tests & A Sleepover At My Parents House

I got in bed too late, I still have a variety of dreams that I woke up remembering and that I almost recorded, but I did not record those dreams so now most of my dreams are now forgotten unfortunately except for barely part of my last dream.

Part of this dream involved genealogical DNA tests and looking at and comparing and talking about our ancestry results / ethnicity results / estimates, and Angry Joe (Joe Vargas) was there and I talked to him about his results and my results (you can click here to see my real genealogical DNA test results) et cetera.
