I got an Ancestry DNA kit for Christmas and I was so excited to send it in. I have always wondered where my ancestors come from, and this was an amazing gift for me to figure that out.
What was really cool about my results was that I found out I was 50% Irish, I knew I was Irish but being 50% is really interesting! Another thing that was really cool was that I found out I was a little Spanish! The Spanish is Iberian Peninsula which is Spain and Portugal. I’m more Spanish than I am Western European and Great British!
Another interesting thing about my results was that my family and I assumed that we were extremely German. But it turns out that we are more Scandinavian than we are German.
This was a memorable experience and one that I can carry with me for the rest of our lives. I can even tell my children, and my grandchildren about these results and they will never have to guess where their ancestors come from.
I hope you enjoyed this post, I know this is a different kind of post than what I usually do but it was exciting for me to find these things out! I wanted to share this experience with you all.
