At age 77, none of my parents' generation are alive now, and of those
of my generation still with us, virtually all have declined to do a
DNA test through various fears of one kind and another (mostly to do
with medical findings or on-selling of results, and even though I have
told them repeatedly that genetic DNA testing such as FTDNA doesn't
collect medical information, and FTDNA does not on-sell results they
remain unconvinced and uncooperative). Sigh! Oh well.
Anyway, I had my autosomal DNA done some years ago and as I read more
about it, I'm thinking that mtDNA might be of some help in the
absence of DNA >from most other relatives.
Is it likely to be worth doing, and who would you recommend: FTDNA,
who did my autosomal test, or Ancestry so I could get on to their new
super collection of data? Am I likely to get anything out of Ancestry
that I can't get >from GEDmatch?
