How much info will you get for $99? Maybe just enough to try to entice you to upgrade.

I paid more, the info was interesting but only as a curiosity.

Here's another one that Ladislav used, which does the same thing.

I took one and it was pretty accurate pinpointing my ancient origins. It does not necessarily pinpoint recent origins. So, a Japanese person would probably show Chinese/Korean and Siberian haplotypes. And then it will show Japan, China, the Chinese diaspora in Asia and so on.

I showed Mesopotamia( Iraq), Kuwait and Jordan/Lebanon/ Syria ( yup!that's what my face looks like) then Russia- yup! My grandfather was a Russian colonel. That's why my skin is so white. Then it was Saudi and North Africa and then... Northwestern Europe and some Indian/Aryan from Afghanistan. Totally accurate. Northwestern Europe could be from some German ancestor on my grandpa's side and Aryan was again from the Slavic side. Slavs are even more Aryan than Germans. Slavic languages sound so much like Farsi. There was a bit of Greece in there, too.

The inconsistencies came in the recent clusters of where this DNA is most common now. It turned out to be in Western Turkey.
