People of color: Have you used an ancestry product?

Have you used a genetic testing service to take a peek into your ancestral background? One of those direct-to-consumer products that tells you about your family’s history and health? A service like 23andMe, Ancestry or National Geographic’s ancestry test?

If so, we want to hear your story.

Marketplace is working on upcoming coverage related to how genetic testing plays out for people of color.

Why did you decide to do this? What were you hoping to learn and what did you actually learn? What were the surprises, good or bad, about the experience? Were you satisfied with the results? If not, why? If you have experiences you’d like to share, questions you’d like answered or anything else you’d like to share, reach our team using the form below or at weekend@marketplace.org.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
