True, although remember that DNA testing compares against where people are living now, so it’s usually only good for the last 500 yrs. They;ve made improvements though, but that’s why you get such a range of possibilities for background. With genealogy though (esp when combined with DNA), you go through actual people you can trace and it’s very specific. Of course there’s always record keeping issues and guesses but as these “World Trees” are replacing stand alone family trees, accuracy is improving.
