Glad to see it took you 2 months, beacuse I've been wondering where my results are. THey told me it would be about a month, but it's now been about 10 weeks & still no results. Although I did get an email telling me that they could not get DNA from my sample, so they were going to redo it.

NO DNA? AM I a robot????

Probably taking longer because the lower price means more people have bought the kits.

I'm thinking of doing this test too. Has anyone who is African American tried it? I'm wondering how specific the results will be for African countries/tribes.

Now is a good time to do 23AndMe if you are African American and willing to share your health and genealogy information:

Roots into the Future: A New 23andMe Research Initiative For African Americans | The 23andMe Blog

https://www.23andme.com/roots/

Determinig an exact tribe is probably not possible:

Out of Africa -- but From Which Tribe?

The usefulness of the test will depend on how many modern Africans are included in the database. As the size of the database increases, you will be more likely to get useful information. Now, you may be able to connect with a specific geographic area rather than a specific tribe. 23AndMe might not be the best database to use.

I am surprised to read reports of people getting results from 23&me. I'm not getting any.
A couple of weeks ago, now 10 weeks after sending my sample, they were telling me my results are complete but undergoing a Quality Review. Sorry - this does not take an additional two weeks. So I am still without results.

What a waste of my time & money!!!!
