My DNA Shock

My DNA Shock

I did a DNA test and the results totally shocked me!

So now I'm doing a second test with another company to see if the results agree.

This time I'm using AncestryDNA

I'm doing the basic ethnic origin test, not a medical analysis test. They don't do full DNA sequencing - they just sample your DNA at 700,000 points and then check you against their database.

This lets them find ethnic origin i.e. the region of the world you were most likely from. Plus, they also give you "matches" - people who have very similar DNA and so could be related. This is a powerful tool.

My AncestryDNA test cost $79, but if you're thinking of doing a test you can get a $10 discount here AncestryDNA - $10 Discount.
