Identical Twins Ethnicity

When two identical twins, Carly and Charlsie, did a DNA test with each of the major DNA testing companies, they quite reasonably expected their ethnicity results to be the same. So how did the companies explain why their results were actually different?

One company spokesman admitted, “It’s kind of a science and an art!” Is that good enough? At any rate, in my opinion it shows that the ethnicity calculations are certainly more on the artistic interpretation side!

Nonetheless, it is important to remember that the most significant information of your DNA test is going to be found within your match list, not in your ethnicity predictions.
