DNA testing

1,009 Views
Message 61 of 61

DH and I had 23andme's DNA testing service run our saliva through their 'magic bean machine' last year. Many family stories about our heritage were confirmed, but there were a few surprises as well. (Woo hoo! I really AM part gypsy! And those Viking heritage stories? Apparently true!)

 

So I'm wondering if anyone here has had their DNA tested, and what they thought of the results. Are you involved in the 23andme community? I mean, what of those requests to share DNA results with 5th and 6th cousins (AKA total strangers)? Have you done it? Was it beneficial to your research or understanding of yourself?
