Today I received my Ancestry DNA kit in the mail.
I had been seeing ads for the DNA kits while working with Ancestry and also on Facebook and decided that I finally needed to test my own DNA. I had both of my parents tested, but decided that I needed to see what got passed down to me.
I did not capture a Black Friday ad, which is when I ordered my kit. However, the sale is still on through Christmas Eve.
I looked at the instructions and found that I first needed to activate my kit and then gather my DNA. Of course, it really doesn’t make a difference which one I did first. How would they know if I did them out of order?
Of course, the next thing to do was to spit in the tube. This was not too hard as I was salivating well for some reason. One spit was almost enough. I then attached the activator and after the fluid drained I shook it up.
Then it was put in the return box and closed up.
I had to go to the bank to deposit a very important check, so walked over to a mailbox rental store and dropped it off so it would be picked up today and be on the way tonight.
I am curious to see the results, as I want to see if any of the places my parents have DNA from drop off with another generation.
It will be interesting to see the percentage of DNA that I get from each of my parents. Will it be right at 50/50? If not, which one am I more like?
For those of you who know both me and my parents, which one do you think will have the higher percentage? Am I more like my Mom or my Dad?
