I got the results of my Ancestry.com DNA testing back today. I don’t quite know what to make of them yet, but here they are:
I also thought I had Native American blood in me, obviously I was wrong…
Grant and I did the genetic DNA thing with “23 and Me” that originally started the testing. When we sent in our spit they only offered countries of origin and matches to people who also shared parts of our same DNA. I found several relatives I didn’t know. The FDA had asked them to stop advising on genetic health problems until they had more proof that it was accurate. They are now allowed to advise and we get the reports as they become available. I don’t have any precursors to Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s. Even though both my parents lost their hearing from spinal meningitis, I inherited a gene that could have effected my hearing, but it didn’t.
Did Ancestry tell you how much Neanderthal you have in your genes?
According to Steph, 100%.
Ha, ha, Grant, too!
