Has anyone here done any genealogy research using DNA testing? If so, what are your thoughts on it?
I understand that DNA test results are rather broad and don't offer much detail. For example, my origins are Swedish and I would learn that I have a Nordic background, which could include Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland. That is too general for me to be of much interest unless I discovered a surpriser such as being part Jewish or something. But even if that happened there are no stories or anything to explain such mysteries.
A Mexican friend, on the other hand, was happy to learn from his DNA that he's 62% Mayan, which was enlightening for him as there are many tribal ethnicities in his culture of origin.
