Hey les gahs, comme on dit en francais - whoa les moteurs! Things are getting nasty and very personal out there. May I gently and respectly suggest that all "cool" it. Of course now I am going to add my 2 cents.
I have used the services of FTDNA, Ancestry, RG, Gene Tree, and OA (probably some sort of record and suggests I am obsessive and / or have more money than I know what to do with - wish the latter was the case).
Believe me, in my long and extensive dealings with these firms I have come to the considered conclusion that FTDNA is by far the best choice. Recall my earlier posting where I used a horse race analogy? But this is just my opinion, but based on a lot of research and experience in dealings with the various labs.
Whatever, all the cards have been laid on the table - perhaps it is time to move on to other threads ......................... Just on opinion, and just a suggestion. David.
