Commercial DNA tests have been a huge trend lately. They were some of the most popular holiday gifts last year. Which makes sense, there's so much excitement in learning more about yourself. However, my dad's family already has a detailed record of their ancestry. If a DNA test is truly accurate, he says it will classify me as heavily African and partly Asian. I took the 23andMe and Helix DNA tests to determine whether they'd confirm my dad's account and if so, to see which test would be more accurate.
