I have my Bone Marrow Donor Registry Results which shows my HLA but seems very basic.  How does this compare to DNA test results?

Not many people have HLA results, but they can be quite interesting in their own right for biogeographical ancestry. You might want to include them in your notes. Here's one link for HLA-A.

For people who are interested in learning their HLA types, some blood centers will test them if you volunteer for platelet donations.

HLA testing is not compatible with the autosomal DNA testing done by AncestryDNA, 23andMe, and Family Tree DNA's Family Finder.
