Ancestry DNA

Thank you for your reply. Yes, I'm going to watch the Eddie Izzard ancestry tonight - have sky plused it just in case I forgot.

I've googled DNA ancestral testing and there are a few come up but it's knowing which one to pick. Ancestry used to do it and there's a tool bar on the top of their home page where you can click on to "DNA" but now it's just for the Americans. I will have to have another look and try to pick one out.

Not sure, but there is a programme on BBC tonight which traces Eddie Izzard's ancestry via his DNA - there might be some useful info on there, who knows - though they will probably make it seem more straightforward than it is!
Have you google searched your query?

Could anyone recommend the best place to get a DNA test done for ancestral origins (I think that is how it is put). I don't want to spend all that money and then find I still don't know where my ancesters originated from.
