> EARL, I've taken the test, but haven't noted if we share. there
are some people who haven't accepted invitations. I'm Cornelia Moore. I
have checked and don't seem to have Ashkenazi ancestry, but do have some
Ashkenazi cousins, and have a Polish/German ancestor born in Congress
> CAROL, there is indeed a way to compare tests, and it's
free. it's called Gedmatch.com. you have to upload your raw data, then
you can compare to everyone else who's submitted their raw data. and
there's things such as chromosome painting, eye comparison and the like
that can be done at Gedmatch. it has a sister site,
Ancestor-Projects.com, where you can focus your data on groups-such as
Ashkenazi, Rroma, AmerIndian, Quaker, etc. you can even start your own
group. I recently heard of another program where you can also compare
your raw data with others, but haven't checked it out-that one might
have been reported on in Eastman's ezine, I'm not sure.

For one of my cousins whose male lineage was uncertain because of an
illegitimate birth (no known father) and a much later marriage of the
mother, my cousin is showing a strong connection with others who have

results only become valuable when you have enough people inputting to
make comparisons easier. So if you have completed this DNA test, I

> Earl, I
have had my family DNA testing done at Ancestry.com. Do you think that I
should repeat it? Probably 23 is more complete. However, I wish there
were a way that all the DNA tests could be gathered and shared, even if
some have less than others. Carol
