    I am Remy Ilona. For many years I wrote books about the origins, culture and history of my Igbo people who are Nigerians by nationality now. All my investigations pointed to ancient Israel as the source of the Igbos. This year I decided to test my DNA, to know if science would be on the same page with ethnography, ethnology, anthropology, and history, and now it comes, my result is that my genes are Nigerian, East African and Middle Eastern!

    I took the DNA after years of feeling spiritually lost. I identified with Judaism & didn’t know why. My African American grandmother only believed in the Old Testament, but there was never an explanation. As a child, I asked many questions about feeling displaced spiritually, & I would be scolded. This search led me to seek a Jewish conversion & during the process, I was constantly asked why I wanted to be a Jew. My only answer was that I felt like a Jew in my soul. My decision to seek conversion led my family of origin to be divided. After the questions presented by the Beis Din in such a difficult process, I wanted to know if what I was feeling since a child was accurate. My DNA results show that My genes are Nigerian, East African, Middle Eastern, & European

    + PROS: I was completed shocked about my results. My results confirmed what I suspected, but had no proof. I have since encouraged others to order their DNA.
    - CONS: The entire experience was amazing!

      Hi Stacie,
      I felt the way as you did and was just as surprised to get results similar to yours. I also had a small percentage of European Jewish ancestry.

    Good and reliable

    + PROS: Simple, easy, user friendly, nice map, nice that you'll get updated when close or distant relatives add to the system
    - CONS: Prepare to wait 1 month for the results, if you live in Europe there will be added waiting time due to postage

    I had taken 23 and me and the results were just too broad (and boring). I really liked My Heritage dna because it was more detailed and much more precise given my known ancestry. The presentation and price were also great,
