Please post how your tests went with 23andme. I am mostly Russian. I have one great-grandmother who was born in Bialystok and all of her ancestry was German Lutheran from throughout Poland. I haven't had any great matches on 23andme, Family Tree DNA nor Ancestry DNA.
Don't forget to upload your data to gedmatch.com to get matches from Ancestry DNA and Family Tree DNA.
