My True Ancestry

Post by joetucciarone »

I've just started seeing ads by this company. They claim to be able to compare our DNA to ancient samples from archaeological sites. Does anybody know anything about them?

I wonder how long environmental DNA survives?

How do you define "true ancestry"?

Looks like it's similar to LivingDNA, that is it's free to upload your DNA data from Ancestry, 23andme, FamilyTreeDNA and etc..but only 1 kit, if you have more than 1 kit, you have to upgrade and pay.

Not sure if it will be much different in results and I'm assuming it is using DNA from bones found at dig sites.
