Genetic Authentication and checking your ancestory

If we are on the verge of authenticating using our unique genetic code should we be using these Ancestry services to chart our genetic past?

 

2 of my 5 tax deductions, my loving way of referring to my children(!), have used 23andMe to validate what I already knew about our ancestry.  I was not privy to 23andMe business model prior to them using their services or I would have vehemently refused permission for them to post MY genetic footprint online.

Re: Genetic Authentication and checking your ancestory

That is exactly the reason why no long ago I banned my daughter's attempt to send our genetic material to one of these ancestry services just to indulge curiosity.
