Ancestry DNA, the results are in!

Unfortunately I’ve been so caught up in streaming the Olympics or watching the Olympics, that I haven’t had a chance to get the next RMC entry written up. I do have some good news though!

It’s been exactly 4 weeks since the lab received my DNA sample and the results are now in! I’ve got to say I’m really quite shocked.  However, my shocking results have made everyone in the family curious and now we’re all starting up DNA  test funds! For my mother’s side, I still haven’t connected an entry point into America. I just know I’ve traced most of them to Virginia at some point.

My father’s side comes from all different kinds of places so far, England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany. So imagine my surprise when none of those places were on my ethnicity results! I’m not an expert on that area of the world, so my next step is obviously to research that part of the world and the places I’m already aware of. I’ve been meaning to study them anyway, this just gives me the motivation to do it!

    How did the “cousin match” portion of the results work for you? Did you get any good information from that? That is the part I’m most excited about seeing when I get my results.

      I actually was going to write up another post about that part when I got the chance. It gave me one 2nd cousin connection, who I had been in contact with before the test, so that was fun to see the difference between the percentages.

      It also has a lot of 4th and 5th cousin possibilities, but so far I’m not seeing anything that matches my tree. I’ll have to wait for responses from the people to get a little more in depth on their trees before I’ll know if they have connections.

      It was very interesting though and I can’t help but keep checking it to see if new connections pop up.
