Genealogy

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else into genealogy? I’m bad at it but I did ancestrydna and got my results back. It’s exciting. I put my data into a site called codegen and also into a site called foundmyfitness

These test kits are kind of dangerous since they are automatically put into a crime database... It's safer to go to the city hall of your birthplace and ask for a genealogy tree there honestly. Genealogy is indeed interesting but I'm not that interested in mine, even though my immediate family is very, very small, since I don't know my father or my father's family side.

Also, many of those DNA sequencing organizations claim ownership of your genetic data when you agree to their terms. That could be a security problem in the future when it comes to insurance. We're already facing personalized advertisement based on physical profiling - better safe than sorry.

Also, I feel like I shouldn't speak about this issue since I'm white myself, but I've noticed that a lot of times it's just caucasian people who buy these kits to try to "prove that they're not 100% white"- they think that just because they're like, 1/36 African it suddenly means that they have authority to speak about what is and isn't racist or something. Of course that's not everybody but it is what I've seen.
