No kidding!  I was recently informed from the spit test what I already knew.  I'm a kraut.

Now, the interesting facet of all this ancestry bullshit is you can deter the relatives, unless you suddenly acquire wealth (win the lottery), by including an honest profile.

When my results appeared online, I received multiple exchanges from unfamiliar relatives.  That persisted until I completed my profile, stating I was an atheist - not one word or message since then. 

I bet if I'd falsely alluded that I believed in Nessie, mountain lions in the east, or Bigfoot, the interactions would have continued and even increased.

Long story short, my great uncle discovered he fathered a child when he was in Germany in WW2 via my ancestry results.  I was contacted by a German guy who was matched as my 1st or 2nd cousin, he'd been looking for his father.  He got in contact with my other relatives and was able to meet his 93 year old father for the first time earlier this year.  My recently discovered cousin has been living in the US since the 60s.  My uncle fondly remembered his mother but had no idea she was pregnant when his commission ended and he came back to the US, so they never stayed in contact.  She died in the US in 2008.

More than 60 percent of Americans who have some European ancestry can be identified using DNA databases -- even if they have not submitted their own DNA, researchers reported Thursday.

The authorities in Minnesota said they identified a suspect in the killing using genealogy and tracked him to a hockey game, where they collected a sample of his DNA.

More than 15 million people have offered up their DNA to online genealogy services in recent years. While they represent a small fraction of all people, the pool of profiles is large enough to allow 60 percent of white Americans â€" the primary users of DNA sites in the United States â€" to be identified through the databases, according to researchers. Researchers believe that in the coming years, 90 percent of Americans of European descent will be identifiable, even if they have not submitted their own DNA

QuoteIn April 2018, California authorities revealed that they'd used a novel investigative technique to arrest a man they called the Golden State Killer, a serial murderer who'd escaped capture for decades.

For the first time, police had submitted DNA from a crime scene into a consumer DNA database, where information about distant relatives helped them identify a suspect.

The announcement kindled a revolution in forensics that has since helped solve more than 50 rapes and homicides in 29 states.

But earlier this year, that online database changed its privacy policy to restrict law enforcement searches, and since then, these cold cases have become much harder to crack. The change is allowing some criminals who could be identified and caught to remain undetected and unpunished, authorities say.

"There are cases that won't get solved or will take longer to solve," Lori Napolitano, the chief of forensic services at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, said.

The switch was imposed by GEDmatch, a free website where people share their DNA profiles in hopes of finding relatives. The company had faced criticism for allowing police to search profiles without users' permission, and decided that it would rather make sure members understood explicitly how investigators were using the site. So, it altered its terms of service to automatically exclude all members from law enforcement searches and left it to them to opt in.

Overnight, the number of profiles available to law enforcement dropped from more than 1 million to zero. While the pool has grown slowly since then, as more people click a police-shield icon on GEDmatch allowing authorities to see their profile, cases remain more difficult to solve, investigators say.

This does not keep me up at night.  FB compiling facial recognition data, and the prospect of said data being sold to various entities bothers me.

I had to submit a DNA sample to the government when I served in the Army.  It was not optional.  The purpose was so they could identify remains if I got blowed up in Iraq - which is fine by me.  But I doubt that access to that database is restricted to only that purpose.  Good thing I am a lawful citizen.

Now that I've curtailed my explorations on private property due to concerns about tech in the woods, I have completely lost interest in fishing.  It was never the fishing that got me off, but rather being free, and enjoying forbidden places. 

If my wife passes before I do, I will take a trip to the Labrador Hwy, abandon the car in the most remote part of Labrador, and start walking until something eats me or I die of starvation/hypothermia/elements.

I feel this and agree. But, just wear a mask or something. I've done it.

I can appreciate this plan.  We should all have such a blueprint.  I'll smoke a ton of weed, attempt to make amends for my multiple transgressions, and travel to the ends of this earth to enjoy a Katy Perry concert, if my lovely wife passes first.  But I don't think statistics are on our side.  In fact, I've discussed in length with the Mrs and son my wishes for my ceremonial dirt snooze.  Hokie Stone monument, song list, celebratory food and drink, etc. all planned out.  Just last week my son and I reviewed the plan - no scripture, no sermon, no hymns, great food and drink (including hooch), first patron to make everyone laugh goes to the front of the food/drink line, first patron to shed a tear goes to the back of the line.  Simple design.
