Recently my wife did the DNA test available through Ancestry.com ($99). The result is very interesting and I plan on getting one done for myself. The report includes a map of dna hits, generic sample below: However a disclaimer is that the report is probably much more beneficial if you've paid for their membership and can research member hits. My wife's report includes 7 pages of people she is related to who I assume are registered at Ancestry.com, primarily 3rd and 4th cousins. I'm not familiar with other DNA testing available and the comparative scope of such reports. One thing that puzzled me is that I expected classifications to be racial, but instead were labels designating locations such as Western Europe, Northern Africa, Iberian Peninsula, etc. I was surprised that they don't focus on race at all. The report included one designator, American Indian which identifies a location and I assumed would include a Mongoloid/Asian designator, but it does not. Just like I thought Western Europe would also include Caucasian, but it does not. This Ancestry.com article describes how they (Ancestry.com) determine "genetic ethnicity. Of possible interest to some of you is this article: How Many Major Races Are There?. Depending on the source, there are 3 or 4 races, however based on DNA, classifications based on traditional racial appearance seem to be less meaningful then originally thought. The article continues with a very interesting debunking of the theory that race is biologically based. However: So I think I now understand why the DNA tests are focused on genetic ethnicity instead of race identifiers.
