My mom and I decided it would be fun to sign up to have our DNA tested through one of the advertised companies that do ancestry research. It was pretty easy, you get a box in the mail, spit in a vile and in 6 weeks received a report back of your ethnicity.
I have been told my entire life that we are German on my mom’s side and Native American on my dad’s side. This made sense as my skin color is kind of yellow and I have always turned super brown in the summer after being in the sun. Well guess what, it was a lie I tell you. Shown below are my results, huh, what? Where in the world did those last three come from? And not a mention of ANY Native American heritage.
Now the questions begin, what if my mom’s comes back completely different, ha. This has been interesting and I now think I need to develop an accent.
