Hurry on this deal from Ancestry! Get your DNA test kits for $30 off! They’re only $69 for a limited time, and they make an excellent gift! This is what I gave some of my family members last Christmas after I had my DNA tested. It is so much fun and so interesting to learn where your ancestors came from based on your DNA results. And if you think you know everything, you may be surprised. I was hoping for a surprise, and I got a few.
Some things lined up perfectly with family tree, but there were some big surprises–like I’m 10% Indian (from India). I thought I was only Scandinavian and English. It turns out I’m also quite a bit Scottish and French too. But, Indian was a big surprise. You’ll probably also see, like I did, that most of us have a little bit of all kinds of ethnicities from around the globe in our DNA, which is also wonderful!
I LOVE Ancestry.com for helping create a family tree too. They have so many incredible resources. One of my grandmother’s mother was English, and using Ancestry, I found I have direct ancestors all the way back to the today’s royal family in England. Unfortunately, royal titles were passed down only to men at that time, and my direct line is mostly through women, so I have no title–just a cool family tree.
