    well if he wants an ancestry test to find relatives then this isn't a feasible option

    if you live in the US most of your information is publicly available so somebody knowing your 5% sub-saharan african is really assinine in comaprison

    You still find your relatives just fine

    I did it on ancestry

    Everyone has their info ready available so you?re right on the second point but don?t think Germans info isn?t as easily accessible because it surely is

    I don?t have any African dna tho

    Pretty much every US resident, provided that they're not fob, is going to get 0.5-1% African added to their report. Some of them might list it under other, the reason for that is so that they can keep you guessing, without giving you a definitive answer.

    It's all a scam anyway, as 2 separate reports, even from the same country, will often have conflicting results far beyond what is considered normal margin of error.

    Moreover, I'm surprised an erudite like OP doesn't know this is a secret gov. program to get more info on its citizens. And if they have his brother's info on file, it automatically means they'll have his as well.

    OP is making me question having signed up for his subscription service. Might not be the real deal.

    Why would you need to give your names to get your relative or ethnicity if its a DNA test

    I'm no lawyer but if you weren't raised by your biological father the department of child services used to send you a letter when you turned 18 showing the name and address of yours, ever since they enacted the data privacy act this stopped and every time you share your address you have to sign some forms saying exactly when and where your personal info will be distributed.

    You can probably find information published before this law without much of a problem but nowadays I'd bet it's much more difficult but not impossible. Addresses are still in every phonebook I think so there's still loopholes.

    wouldn't you need the DNA of said relative in some accessible database to prove a match?

    with names I suppose it's much easier to get an address/trace of lineage than purely DNA.
