I meant to add that it seems quite expensive but I'm very interested in having a go.

If the job they charge for is anything like that shown on television, all it will do is indicate whether your recent family origins are Nordic, middle Eastern or whatever. This will leave you with a massive number of possibilities to deal with but is kind of interesting as it may indicate the route your set of genes took to get where they are today.

At the start of course it will say your family started in Africa along with the rest of us.

I'm not sure that you'll learn much you don't know already.

If you're European you will almost certainly be descended from one of several groups of hominids originating in Africa. Interesting, but not what you're really after.
