Basically my mother slept around in school, and there is a high possibility of 3 guys (only know the first name of 2) but could be as many as 15+ different people. So I'm wondering if there is a way to get a genetic test and find out who, or set some flag or something that if a match comes up im alerted. I am wanting to find out my genetic history so i can know possibility of disorders, family things that may skip generations, ct so that if it ever comes up i would know.

@Riddler356,
Usually a paternity test is going to be pretty useless unless you have the candidate fathers' DNA samples. Perhaps you could get a few of the possibles to participate. But don't count on this, particularly if you are under the age of 18.

Can you get a 23 and me style DNA test? Of course you can, although it's not going to get you any closer to solving the paternity puzzle.

@Riddler356,
Sometimes genetic history is very important, but do you really, really want to
know everything?
What will you do if you are told you might get illness X sometime in your life?
Worry year after year about something that maybe never happens?
You might get illness X but die from illness Y long before that, becouse you concentrated too much on X and did not check on Y.
Or before you get X there is a cure for it so you did not have to worry.
