Bear with me please. I am going to have DNA testing done one way or another. I want to find out what my choices are. Since I do not know my Scottish connection, if it exists, is there any good reason to participate in the ScotDNA testing? If I particiipate in the ScotDNA testing will my results be compared to other groups or just the ScotDNA? By reading at the FamilyTreeDNA site it appears that if I submit my sample, they will search their entire database for matches and continue look for matches as their database expands. Are the results of the ScotDNA testing also compared to this database or just to some smaller database. If I have testing done outside ScotDNA can I give you my results so you can see if there are any matches.
Please let me know your opinion. I do not know where my branch connects to the tree.
