I want to do a DNA test.
Has anyone done the Geno ( National Geographic) or 23andMe tests ?
Or the Ancestry one ?
If you have which is better and why ?
Thank you.

What are you hoping to find out? Are you looking to match up with distant cousins?

No not wanting to match up with distant cousins.
Just wanting to see where originally my ancestors came from.

In my opinion the 'ethnicity' tests cannot tell you where your ancestors came from. This part of the test is not really helpful and has recieved a lot criticism from scientists. It shouldn't be taken too seriously.
If that part is your only reason, I wouldn't waste your money

Others might have a different view though
