Another cupcake topic to break the tension.  I finally did a DNA test kit.  I chose the “My Heritage” mainly because I saw the ad on TV and used a promo code for free shipping.  I did the swabs and mailed off the kit yesterday and in about a month or so I should get the results back.

I have perceptions on my family origins that have been past on from family stories. It will be interesting if the DNA supports those stories.  I was curious if anyone else here has done one and how the results came out?

My wife did and my father did. In both cases it matched what was known about the family history. In one case, there had been extensive research done, and it matched the research. They were both done through Ancestry.
