I'm sorry you had such a negative experience with your AncestryDNA test. My adopted friend and I have nothing but praise for it. Yes, we got a lot of good clues from 23andMe and GEDMatch but it wasn't until we received her AncestryDNA results that we were able to find her birth family with just a few weeks. Of course it helps to come from a prolific family (she has over 1100 4th cousins or closer and I have just 128!) I guess it just depends on what you are taking the test for and what you are trying to get out of it. I personally think it was one of the best $100 purchases I've ever made!!
