Just curious how many of you may have used one of those DNA test sites for yourself and how reliable you found it. If you have I'd say it's likely you had results like mine.

1. Mostly confirmation of ancestry you have been told by your family.

2. Maybe some rebalancing of ethnic groups, a little more of this, not so much of that.

3. One or two very interesting surprises. Large, small, maybe completely unsuspected.

4. Exotic trace amounts 1% or less of something that seems so unlikely it might seem almost impossible.

Did you try one of these tests? How did it work out compared to what you believed you knew about your origins? Were you shocked? Pleasantly surprised? Basically confirmed in what you knew? Or were there more surprises than not? How did your test results work out compared to what you believed previously?
