ancestry dna

Meurs, which service did you use? I got the one from ancestry.com for Mother's Day, but saw a post that they don't have a chromosome browser. This other GEDMatch site, I guess you can use that for free? Is it worth even doing? I was mainly doing it for fun. I used to research family trees but it's time consuming and somewhat frustrating (fun too though), but I'm not sure if it's really useful to find 4th cousins and such? What did you do after getting your results? Were you able to use the results to actually make connections with distant relatives?

I did ancestry. I just wanted to look at my geographical background. I'm not too interested in the 3rd cousin matches, etc.

You can download the raw DNA and use it at GEDMatch. There's some medical DNA parsing software you can use too. That was the most fun, because you could see if you were prone to this or that disease or if ibuprofen didn't do shit for you, etc.

I forgot to mention, that I did have a few folks ping me based on DNA matches via Ancestry and GEDMatch. I believe those were opt-ins.

That sounds cool. I want to know why I have a size 11 shoe but I am only 5'8. I wonder if my genetics went haywire somewhere. My brother who is taller than me has a size 8 shoe... Like wtf genetics.

I've been asked to submit my DNA by researchers searching for the handsome gene. Maybe I could get you into the control group la.

You are asian, the whiteman can't tell ugly asians from good looking asians. Not at least until they live with them for a few years. Same vice versa. That is why fat ugly americans go to asian countries to get hot asian woman. They might both be ugly in their own native lands but i guess they are good looking to each other.
