The ultimate pre-existing condition: genetic disease.Shouldn't that no longer be true with the ACA?Plus, I would hope you can sign something with the tester such that they require your consent to share your results.
xxmedium: I've used both services - familytreedna.com for mtdna and ydna (before familyfinder xdna testing was available) and 23andme.com for the xdna. I will second using gedmatch.com which will take results from both companies (and ancestry.com I believe too but not sure).The biggest problem with gedmatch now is availability. They had to shut their site down for almost a month to migrate to another hosting provider because the demand for testing matches across different companies' data was so great their servers got swamped.
