    Has anyone done one of those ethnicity/ancestry DNA tests?

    Has anyone done one of those ethnicity/ancestry DNA tests?

    Ancestry.com has done exactly what you said would be "impractical" . . . they have a reference panel of thousands of samples from distinct regions of the world.  Maybe they don't have samples from every valley in the Balkans but they aren't basing the results simply on customer replies. Your...
