This will be the thread that I post updates to the X-File on. For those of you who don't know, I keep a spreadsheet of X-Chromosome results from 23and me that people can download and play with. Sean put the details in an earlier post.
Sean, Thank you for updating a "blurb" for my file, I couldn't of put it better as far as a disclaimer.
Maybe I can figure out a signiature on here like I have at the other joint so when I post updates the link is always there.
By the way, the file has been updated today. ID028 has been fixed, and we have a new entry that is a male with all X ancestry hailing From Alsace.
Thanks everybody!

Thanks for starting this thread, Ben, and even more thanks for maintaining that highly-useful spreadsheet.  A lot of interesting discoveries are coming from it, and I encourage people to contribute.

As for your signature... if you click on the "profile" button on the top navigation bar (you have to be logged in to see it), and then click on "Forum Profile Information," you'll see a place where you can add your signature.  I have no idea if a hyperlink can be included in a sig, as I haven't tried adding any HTML tags to mine.  You might just have to spell out the URLs as plain text.

ID027 has now been fixed on the X-File. The sheet should be good to go now.

I know that several of us here would be happy to help you when your results come in, Maria--I certainly will!  Don't worry at all about the complexities of the haploblocks issues (unless you really want to know).  Most of the details that people discuss here are things that aren't especially important to non-scientists, and there are all sorts of things to be appreciated at more basic levels.

Good for you for ordering a test, and we look forward to having you join the "club!"

Something amazing happened.  My 23andme test results came in... They received my sample at the lab Feb 26, 2008 and results came in Thursday night...This is 15 days.  I read people were waiting 11 weeks for results... I feel really bad for those people!
My ancestry paiting is 100% European...Someone else who has Native heritage also received 100% European...So Im not alone. My understanding of the test is  that this autosomal dna test doesn't count the last 500 years heritage... The last 500 years is  where my Potowomeke heritage comes in.  They are picking up my German, English, Scottish, Irish, Welsh, French and Swiss.  So Decodeme and 23andme are so cool.. Nothings changed for me...So I have European and Native American heritage , I don't see where it has to be either or!  What would you be extracting from my test results? Help!

Hey, Maria, congratulations on getting your results so quickly!  I'd sure be interested in hearing 23andMe's explanation for how some people's tests can come back so quickly, when they've been projecting 10-12 weeks lately for everybody (I'm at almost 9 weeks myself waiting on my father's results).  Perhaps you could post a comment about it on the Product Discussion board on 23andMe's community forum (if you haven't already) and see if they can shed some light on this issue.  It almost seems as if your sample completely bypassed the big backlog and went right to the front of the line.  I wonder if later samples started going to a different lab.  Anyway, that's a good sign that things might be speeding up.

Anyway, when you said that the 23andMe test doesn't count the last 500 years, you actually had that backwards.  It actually puts greater emphasis on the past several generations.  The farther back in time your target ancestor lived, the less likely that his/her DNA will show up in your ancestry painting diagram.  I've seen some simulation results that show that for a person who had an Amerind ancestor who lived 10 generations ago, there's an 81% chance that he wouldn't show up at all as any orange blocks on your ancestry painting.  That percentage increases the farther back the ancestor lived, until eventually there's virtually no chance that (s)he would show up.

As for what we would be extracting from your test results, I can show you that more succinctly than I can explain it, if you look at the project's X-SNP results chart:

http://www.worldfamilies.net/geo/xdna/results?raw=1

You would be a new column in that chart if you decided to submit your data.  This chart isn't really designed to be something that will be of immediate use to the casual genealogist for researching their family histories--it's more of a tool for researchers to help learn what we can about X-chromosome inheritance patterns (it's a rather young science at present).  Nonetheless, a lot of people find it interesting to see how their data matches up with people from various ethnicities.

Here's a post that discusses the data submission procedures:

Let us know if you have any questions, and welcome the club!
