    If you haven t bought this before, it could be interesting for both general ancestry and medical history, but problems in the algorithm make it hard to predict

      If you haven't bought this before, it could be interesting for both general ancestry and medical history, but problems in the algorithm make it hard to predict ranges among genetic cousins.
       
      Nobody is sure yet what SNPs they will be changing from their previous version of the chip, version 2, but as in the past they will be testing SNPs on the Y. You can then (and should!) join the project for reporting SNPs on the Y:
       
       
      Several SNPs have been found this way.
       
      This is also useful for adopted people to get some sense of their ancestry.
       
      My only reservation is the subscription service. You might want to order this but then plan to drop the service after the 1-year minimum ($5/month x 12 = $60).
       
      Best,
