The Ancestry DNA test is very easy to use and it comes with a prepaid envelop. I do wish that you got your results faster. Mine took almost 2 months before I was able to see the results.

The results are interesting though. I have plenty of European heritage that I know and guessed I had but was surprised to see a percentage of Asian DNA. I was not expecting that and will make an interesting branch on my Family Tree when I start one. I am really curious how that happen and I hope when I start researching I will be able to find out. I just retired so this will be a perfect thing for me to work on, on rainy days.
Pros
Interesting info about yourself
Cons
Results are slow to get. Mine took almost 2 months from start to finish.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

In my opinion the DNA testing kit is a must have for Ancestry.com subscribers. For the past 6 months I had grown my family tree to just 32 members. I couldn't find anymore and I thought I was stuck. 

For Christmas last year someone in my family gave me the Ancestry DNA testing kit. I sent in my results any in 2 long months (way to long to wait) I got my results. While the ethnicity estimate is interesting what I found I really liked with the DNA Circles tool. I never knew about this tool before but it allows you to find other people that match in part your DNA there by potentially filling in your family tree more. I found 2 really close matches and have been expanding my family tree every since.

Really glad I did the DNA test and those of you who have a family tree on Ancestry.com will be too.
Pros
DNA Circles tool is great for finding more relatives.
Cons
Takes too long for results to be completed. 2 weeks would be more reasonable.
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

The commercials are very misleading and make you think that there are specifics and some nice things to download. None of this is true. Our family new that there was aboriginal from our Swedish side from family photos of very dark skinned Grandparents. We also have darker skin ourselves. All ancestry dna gave was a general region called Norway/West Russian and after a second inquiry asking what our aboriginal tribe was that could be Laplander and why wasn't it in the results?, they replied saying that the region Norway/West Russia could mean that we have Laplander or something else from that region.

It was completely vague, and I would not recommend that anyone purchase an ancestry dna kit.

Pros
none
Cons
It only gives very general regions, and you don't even get anything nice to print up for all your money
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Ancestry's DNA test is perfect for those of us who subscribe to Ancestry.com. For my family tree I could only find 32 relatives based on searching through the records. After I took the DNA test and with the new DNA Circles tool that  you can use, I found numerous more distant relatives based on my DNA alone.  I was able to connect them and their family trees to my tree expanding the knowledge of  how my ancestors migrated across the world. Ancestry DNA is integrated well into Ancestry.com and is an excellent tool for those interested in genealogy.
Pros
Really great for Ancestry.com subscribers
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

My results for the most part from Ancestrydna did not surprise me. I was 60% English which is not shocking as most of my aunts, uncles and grandparents still live in England. What surprised me is that I have nothing from France. We live in New Orleans and my mother and her mother were born in France as well so I was expecting some French unless my Grandmothers parents had both immigrated from somewhere else. My mother when she was alive never mentioned that and unfortunately I never asked.

So either the DNA test got it wrong or I am not part French. Weird!
Pros
Finding out what your relatives are
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
