AncestryDNA and the Future of Genetic Genealogy

If you're into genetic genealogy, or even mildly interested, I recommend a well written blog posting by Cece Moore which reviews her experience with AncestryDNA testing, and delves into the larger than expected proportion of Scandinavian ancestry typically reported for those with British ancestry.
She reports receiving confirmation that Ancestry will be releasing individual's raw results, something that has stopped me from taking the test. I'm still not sure I'll do so preferring to wait until an affordable test of a larger number of SNPs is available, maybe even the full genome.

There's more. Cece's post is a worthwhile read, at www.yourgeneticgenealogist.com
