23andMe The Story of Your DNA Book

In an unusual twist, I noticed my niece had tested with 23andMe. She’s the same niece that tested at AncestryDNA a while back. Her test had to be recent as she’s only on the middle of page 4 when I sort by recently tested. Her mtDNA haplogroup shows as C and mine shows as C1b2.

I haven’t noticed it before, but when I was checking out 23andMe earlier today, I noticed they offered a hard back book ($39.99 + shipping and taxes): https://you.23andme.com/book/?utm_campaign=book_product_hero. It lets you download a PDF ebook version of the book for free. My ebook was 50 pages long. It was broken down into different sections:

1. Ancestry Composition
2. Maternal Haplogroup
3. Paternal Haplogroup
4. Neanderthal Ancestry
5. Your DNA Relatives
6. What Will You Do with Your DNA?

1. Ancestry Composition
You see the same ethnicity breakdown as you see in your results on their website when you go to https://you.23andme.com/reports/ancestry_composition_hd/.

2. Maternal Haplogroup (mtDNA)
For maternal haplogroup, you get something similar to https://you.23andme.com/reports/maternal_haplogroup/.

3. Paternal Haplogroup
For paternal haplogroup, you get something similar to https://you.23andme.com/reports/paternal_haplogroup/.

4. Neanderthal Ancestry
For Neanderthal Ancestry, you get something similar to https://you.23andme.com/reports/neanderthal/.

5. Your DNA Relatives
For DNA Relatives, you get something similar to https://you.23andme.com/tools/relatives/ although it doesn’t list names.

6. What Will You Do with Your DNA? I am not sure what you get that’s similar to what’s on the 23andMe website.
