I got my DNA test results back

Actually, I never got DNA tests, but if I did I probably would have had the results back by now.

^ she is .1% India, and the rest eastern European, German etc. Do you trust DNA tests to be accurate?

How can they get .1% of something? I think it's fake.

Ukraine is broke, and undertook a war on that portion of the country that provided 30% of GDP. Now a draft, for an army, for a war, for a government that will - get this - implement IMF/EU *austerity*.

Millions of people are purchasing home DNA kits like 23andMe, Family Tree DNA, and Ancestry DNA, to unlock the secrets to their ancestry, but are the results always 100 percent reliable?

To find out, Inside Edition enlisted the help of two sets of indistinguishable triplets and a set of indentical quadruplets to investigate the accuracy of the at-home tests.

Apparently not fake.

I had mine done on Ancestry last year. Put to rest some family myths. Also through connections with other people with matching DNA exposed some old family scandals.

Neat stuff. Unfortunately my own genealogy is rather plain with >95% being from the British Isles.
