I noticed that some posters have haplogroup info below their posts. What does the info mean? I don't understand it. Will Nat. Geographic translate that for you when you receive your results? Is it really helpful in trying to find out mor about one's genotype? It's not inexpensive, so I'm wondering if it would be worth it for me?

For me it didn't change anything. In my opinion it is only 'worth it' if you have mixed ancestral/ethnical origins and are -consequently- not sure what to answer to the "Your ethnicity"-SWAMI-question.

there is in fact a section to click on your dna mitochondrial results given in the genographic project report.....

the option is entirely yours.......

individuality rules!

I was lucky to send my brother living in NY two kits, one for Y chromosome, the other for Mitochondrial.....

It's National Geographic's research project and either you want to participate to learn more about
your deep ancestry or you don't.  It's not information required for SWAMI.  No, I didn't get
major translation from Nat. Geog.....but it's easy to google your results and learn
a lot more about your ancestry's migration patterns..  I was just curious to find out if my heritage was Ashkenazi or not.  It is!   I didn't have any living relatives who could tell me this. And I found out my subgroup of which 800,000 people share. Just found it interesting to know.  It means my sisters could know mitochondrial data (because I knew mine)...and my children now know.  But of course, I couldn't learn anything about my dad's side...He's gone and no males exist on his side who could be tested.

Maybe reading more about haplogroups might interest you D.L

Very interesting, Chloe, do you think if i tested one if my sons i could learn about my fathers side?  And then test myself for my maternal ancestory?

Testing your son would tell him about HIS father and not yours.

Testing your father, his brothers or their sons or your brothers (if you have any and I didn't) would give you your paternal ancestry.

I could only find out my maternal ancestry. My father had 2 brothers, both deceased and one brother
only had a daughter. If just one male relative on my dad's side existed, I could have found out
paternal lineage.  It's a bummer!

Oh of course, that makes sense.  My father is still alive but due to family politics I don't think I will be able to ever find out...But I would like to find out my husbands side too anyway.
The list of tests I want to get done has just got longer again!!!

This sounds very exciting and revealing. I have to learn about it and I already think I'll participate. I'm Jewish from an Eastern Europe origin (Belaruss-Hungary), and very curious about what I'm going to find out.

Another option is to test through 23andme.com if you want to find out about your genetics beyond just your haplogroups.  My brother tested paternal DNA with National Geographic.  I tested maternal DNA with 23andme and also received a very extensive report of my genetic makeup which includes SNP's and elevated risk, typical risk and low risk for diseases/medical conditions.  One of the things I was astounded to discover is that despite my family's terrible family history of heart disease, my risks are low for that.

You can choose to find out whether you are at risk for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's as well, but you have to choose to learn about those risks.

Hi Jane,
Yes it is good news!  Of course there are other things I have elevated risk, but according to my doctor they are fairly obscure.  He said I have a really good, strong genetic profile.

I wonder if my diet has helped to turn off some of those bad genes . . . maybe we should start a thread on that!

That must have taken a load off of your shoulders Patty. Our minds are wonderful when relaxed!
Happy for you.

Patty - I went on the 23andme website to check it out. I gave up trying to read all the rules and regulations. Basically, I wonder about the privacy when you fill out all your information. How private is it?

You can choose to donate your information to their scientific research or not.  We chose not to.  I imagine it is just as private as any other genetic testing service, but I don't know for sure.  C Sharp on this board recommended it and I trust his judgement, but you will need to make that choice on your own.  The amount of information you get is astounding!
