My AncestryDNA Playing Card

AncestryDNA.com has a new AncestryDNA Playing Card which includes a photograph and the DNA ethnicity estimate - they look like baseball cards.

You can do your own if you have done an AncestryDNA test and have added a photograph to your Ancestry.com account.  Go to "Your DNA Results Summary" page on your "DNA" menu list, and the MyAncestryDNA card is shown at the top of the page.  You can save it to Twitter, Facebook and/or your computer files.

Here's my AncestryDNA playing card:


As I've noted before, I don't think my ethnicity estimates on AncestryDNA reflect my ethnicity.  The other DNA tests on FamilyTreeDNA, 23andMe, MyHeritage and Living DNA all say my British Isles ethnicity is much more than the AncestryDNA estimate.

                             ==============================================

Disclosure:  I have had a fully paid Ancestry.com subscription since 2000.  Ancestry.com has provided material considerations for travel expenses to meetings, and has hosted events and meals that I have attended in Salt Lake City, in past years.  I also received a complimentary AncestryDNA test several years ago.

I've been toying with the idea that I should retest at Ancestry. I did my testing quite a few years ago. It stands to reason that the process and technology has been changed/improved. Maybe that is the same for you.
