Are Ancestry DNA tests a scam?

I want to take a DNA Ancestry test to determine if I have any Eastern European or Italian ancestry whatsoever.

I am a bit concerned that Ancestry Dna tests are a scam, particularely the ones offered on ancestry.com.au for nearly $160 AUS...

Answers:

No they are sold to entertain people and will show you what they have in the database on that day, if you test another day you will get entertained again and get different results........... however if you want to know where your ancestors are from and who they were then there is only one way to do that and that is to research the real records you ad your ancestors generated during their lifetime and that starts at home with your records and all the other records you and your family have...all free and all real http://familytimeline.webs.com/recordsin...

Ancestry.com's DNA tests seem to be honest and accurate, from my personal experience. However, paying them to do a special genealogy is NOT something I would recommend, again based on my experience

They are not precise.

Save your money

They are very accurate. However, they are mostly for liberal racist whites who think minorities play unwarranted "victim card", and they want to validate themselves doing the same. Not understanding a single sentence of what the actual anti-racism movement means. I'm not saying conservatives whites are better. I just consider all conservative whites as white trash and not even worth treating them as human beings.

They are very, very important to anyone who likes spaghetti or pirogi. How can you know if you REALLY like that sort of stuff unless you are at least slightly ethnic? Imagine the calamity of liking Scotch or vodka without being Scottish or Russian!

I'm not sure what you mean by scam? They look at your DNA and, to the best of their ability, show you where your ancestors originated.

I'm an adoptee and I took the test several years ago in an attempt to find my previously unknown father. It matched me with cousins on his side and those matches helped me sort out who he was (he is deceased). It has given me peace in knowing, plus I've met some nice people in my original family from doing it. When my sister (same mother, different father) tested her DNA through ancestry, it matched us as sisters, and a cousin on our mother's side has also been matched to us, so it works in terms of being able to tell who is related.

Edited to add: For me, as I do further research into my original parents' families, I am finding that what my DNA results showed is accurate as far as where known ancestors lived. There is always some guesswork. In the history of the world, people have always moved around and always intermarried with one another so it's hard to say exactly what "German" DNA is, or "Russian" DNA.

A scam..well, they definitely sell to people who care about silly stuff.
