    I'm fascinated with what these DNA genealogical tests say they can do.

    Here are a few examples:

    http://www.africanancestry.com/benefits.html
    http://www.dnaancestryproject.com/

    However, I wonder about the legitimacy of these commercial testing agencies. How legit can they be? Seems they could just take my money and I wouldn't know the difference no matter if they told me X or Y about my genetic ancestry.

    Money-making scam, or legit?

    Take tests from two independent companies and compare the results.
    It might cost you though.
