      Gary, do you know how the 23andme test compares to the ancestry.com autosomal test? I noticed you mentioned that health issues are addressed in the 23andme test. I am waiting for the results to the ancestry.com test but I do know they said that medical data is not included.

      Your welcome Beto,
      the test at 23andme.com is well worth taking as you get health related reports and a larger database to compare your ancestry with.

      > Hola Beto,
      > FTDNA's autosomal testing is still in the Beta or testing phase. 23andme's autosomal is superior but both have their deficiencies. For admixed populations autosomal testing is particularly difficult. FTDNA is still calling our Euro heritage, Eastern European in origin. 23andme is more accurate in showing our Iberian ancestry with little to no Eastern Euro in our autosomal makeup. 23andme still leaves some DNA unassigned or un-classified.
      > The ancestry breakdown at 23andme is more specific comparing your results with many more populations. They are developing quite a database with a 99 dollar price tag so comparisons should improve.
      > Since Robert Tarin is developing a matrix that will compare Mexico project members who have taken the Family Finder test at FTDNA you will be able to see at a glance who you are related to in the project. This is a feature 23andme does not have since they do not have geographical projects. You can see what I have done on the Family Finder link to the left of this page but my computer ran out of memory and I have not updated it in a while.
