OK, this is a personal thread really, but if anyone has time to post a reply I'd be really greatful... I think I remember someone on Destee posting results they got off this test - not sure how many other people here might have had this done... Anyways I sent off for my results a couple of weeks ago and have another couple at least before I get any results... Now this is a question for those of you with some expertise in this genetics stuff - exactly what does the test result prove? I'd originally thought it would basically give me an idea of the proportions in my ethnic background as in how many % black, native American etc that I am. Now I've become a little confused by the fact that apparently siblings can end up with different results - does this mean the test is really determining your own individual mix - I've heard tell of white sperm and black sperm coming from a mixed father, but have no idea if that's scientifically possible. I've also heard about someone getting a test result back with a much higher % of black than they would have expected - this was another blonde, blue eyes quadroon like me who got back a result of 56% black - is that at all possible - am I being too simplistic in thinking that for a quadroon you'd expect 25% maximum? Obviously I'm hoping that if that's true my % would be up near that mark. I've also been told that I shouldn't assume my looks will mean a low % as the genes tested for aren't the same ones that determine your looks - again have no idea if that's true or not... I'd be quite keen to know exactly what the test results actually prove before I get to open my envelope.
