I also wonder if potential employers will soon require candidates to spit in a tube or fax over their DNA test results. Many of them are already asking candidates to hand over their social media passwords so they can check their Facebook and Twitter. (Not sure why—I had a manager who snooped on our Facebook pages to see what we were posting there. It’s not a state secret.)

No Native American ancestry showed up, which is surprising. We have Creek in our lineage. But I think that doesn’t show up in DNA tests anyway. 

  

@NotMyCircus - My results showed my Native American ancestry, which I already knew. 

Cherokee here. 🙂

Mine is:

  • England, Wales & Northwestern Europe 64%
  • Ireland & Scotland 20%
  • Germanic Europe 14%
  • Norway 2%

I can feel my Celtic roots, but for some reason with my dark hair and eyes people think I have a Latin background.

Perhaps it's just me, but I don't care enough to discern the particulars.

I'm on earth. I love people (but perhaps don't like them all). My DNA discovery won't change much, if anything at all, in my life.

One of those DNA companies got hacked.

Humans can be perplexing, we want freedom but we volunteer the most personal identity we have.

People take their freedom and privacy for granted today.  I don't want my DNA in anyone's database, just sitting there for the taking by hackers or being used by any company to analyze me or look into my ancestry.  I'm not signing up for that.

I don't trust the motivations of the companies I might entrust with my DNA.  I think they're looking for people with certain DNA and what better way to do it than offer their DNA tests to the public as a "fun" thing for a low price.
