    That sounds really interesting. Would love to know my ancestry too.

    I think every single person should get one of these tests, I think a lot of people would be surprised about where they are really from! I really want to do one, I have an unusual name so we’ve traced back some lines but I want to know more!! Fascinating stuff, hope the results come soon!

      It’s like that video they did where people learned their true heritage and learned that two of them were cousins? I think Americans ought to do it – especially the ones that are so anti-foreign… don’t they know that their own family came from somewhere else? I don’t want to get political in reply to your comment though! Your name looks German but not German enough – Polish, maybe? Eastern European?

    Wow! I am surprised by all that DNA testing can tell you. I always assumed that it was just about what countries your ancestors were from.

      I was definitely surprised, so I’m looking forward to learning more about my health (maybe? haha)

    Thanks for detailing the process. I know decent about the science behind it but seeing what to do on the consumer end is great 🙂

      You’re welcome. I plan to keep this going especially as I get my results 🙂

    Now this is a true journey! My partner did the test and discovered a part of his family in the US on the East Coast that he had never met. What unfolded led us to visiting Slovakia and finding more of his family there. So, who knows where you’ll go and the who you’ll meet!

    I’ve done the Ancestry.com DNA test, but I have to admit I was a little disappointed with the quality of information I received. My eldest brother had also done one (through another company I believe) and got a heck of a lot more information AND considerably different results as well. From his test, we were told that on my mums side there was 22% Egyptian (that was a shocker) & on my dad’s side it was more British (not a shocker).

    When I got my results, on both my parents sides, I was predominantly Scottish/Irish and from the north of England – which considering my recent discovery of Yorkshire & how much I loved it, doesn’t seem very surprising haha.

    I wouldn’t mind doing the 23andme one tho, especially with the extra health option. It will be fascinating to get the results though.

      My understanding is that the Nat Geo one and the Ancestry DNA one aren’t as detailed as the 23andme one. They can only get better as we go further with scientific advances
