Comparing Autosomal DNA

I tested my autosomal DNA when Ancestry was still in beta testing. I was excited to do it, but had no clue what to do with it. Once in a while, I will open it up and take a look at the results. Mostly I am interested to see if I have any new cousin connections that would be closer than 3rd cousins. Yeah, not yet.

Last week, my FB friend True posted some of the discrepancies she has seen in her results across the different platforms. This intrigued me. So, I decided to take a look at the results I had across the different platforms: AncestryDNA, Family Tree DNA and DNA Land.

Looking at the maps you can see the small differences. In my next post, we will talk about the differences that I found a bit odd.
