DNA tests a waste of money?

So let me get this straight... the ancestry results said that two siblings have different mitochondrial DNA markers?!!? Either one of those "once every 20,000 years" mutations JUST occurred, or this site is not the place to go for DNA testing...

I like all of the awareness now about genealogy, but the way Ancestry markets this site... "I saw a leaf and found a picture of my great grandfather in a stovepipe hat!" worries me. I get the impression they're more about the $ than the science. This info from your tests only adds to how I've been feeling lately.

At the very least, Ancestry should either fully refund you and your brother, or offer to redo the tests for free.
