Re: DNA testing #dna

They seem fine, but each company has its own reference populations and own algorithms.  For a while FTDNA had me with a small percentage of North American.  They have since removed it and I am back at 100% AJ.  The trace percentages are often just noise REGARDLESS of the company.  All of the companies use a least squares technique.  The fit the biggest piece and remove that data then they fit the next biggest etc.  By the time that you are down to the trace regions there is not much data left to fit and wild results may occur.
