DNA tests are a big rip off

Besides getting my results from submitting my saliva over a year ago taking a ridiculous long turn around time, there were no great discoveries where snippets had that already were known, it’s a scam that tries to suck you into buying anything more.

The proverbial bate and switch: one of my greatest pet peeves.

If I want to know more before the dangled carrot, I have to agree to a free trial by submitting my credit card details.

AncestryDNA has done nothing to earn my personal information.

What they shared with me was information available from any public records: birth certificate, death notices from newspapers or census’s details any Canadian knows it law that we be accounted for.

I got my DNA results back today Grandparents Annie & Donald *** marriage certificate from 1919 – Annie**** born in England was 43 and Donald **** was 41: that’s the biggest scandal: that was their age when Dad was born and she was the older woman; he died in 1965 in New Westminster BC

A writer, a blogger, a seeker, a finder; discovering nuances that are unique to those born between 1960 and 1965 .... the tail end of Baby Boomers or the start of the X-Generation. A student of demographic, avid reader, curioso, vivid aesthetic eye, wannabe artist. I write about what appeals to Yuppies who are 50 plus and wanting to be the best of anything and everything! I provide insights and build camaraderie among YUPPIES of the 1980s, an impactful demographic born in the 60s, went into Junior High | Middle School in the mid 70s and graduated from High School 1979, followed by the roller coasters in the 1980s. Regardless of location, religion, gender identity, age, culture, beliefs, education or economic standing: EVERYONE is famous in their own world:: having the starring role. An expression, a reflection or opinion using the positive vibe that attracts ALL the movers & shakers of their WORLD. I encourage other and calm the waters for those considering entering the online universe, where the only boundaries are your own imagination. I do somersaults (virtually and imaginatively) whenever someone takes the time to comment ~ that's a true treasure!!
