For someone of recent known European descent, it might not be that interesting. For those of us pursuing ancestors of uncertain background, it may help indicate what, if anything should be pursued. I.e., my mother's maternal grandmother was clearly of mixed race (quiet family story was "part Indian"); I believe she was half Black, with perhaps some Native American. And to make things a bit more complicated, her mtDNA haplogroup is J1b1 (i.e., Scotland/Ireland/Norway/Iceland). Now if I can just convince my grandmother's one surviving sibling to donate a genetic sample for a BGA type test... Unfortunately, he never was quite rational on the topic of his mother being anything other than caucasian, so that may not pan out.
