Ancestry DNA Test
« on: April 25, 2014, 06:48:22 PM »
FYI...
Ancestry is offering their DNA test kit for $79.00 until April 27th.
This is a great deal and I've already gotten several matches to
the test I did in January.

Had my DNA tested a couple of years ago when it was offered for free by Ancestry.com.  It has matched me up with 1st cousin once removed, several 2nd. cousins and 3rd and 4th cousins on both sides of my family.  Two Cash 2nd cousins have made the trip to meet me and we've been to the cemetery where our great grandparents are buried and their grandfather who was my grandfather's brother.  I never knew these cousins existed.  It's been amazing and exciting that I've been matched with cousins from both sides of my family.  By the way I'm 35% Viking, 28% British Isles, 19% Iberian Peninsula, 13% Western Europe, trace elements in Northwest Russia, Italy, Greece and Caucasus.  I like to think the Viking part was from Scotland after the Vikings settled there.  :D

BARBARA, I was just reading your comments on the VIKING heritage DNA, I do not know if you know, which I would be surprised if you did not know but the vikings had a large influence in parts of Scotland when they started their search for better lands to own under the vikings rule, and the early Scotland was part of their early exploration.  I am sure Stu could add some info on this subject, that is of course he has not already written of this in the past before i joined the group. So grab your horned helmet and axe and be ready for conquests.  JUST A BIT OF HUMOR.

No Mary. Let's just say it's in the works. :) I will be sure to let you know though when it happens.

Well I finally broke down and ordered the Ancestry DNA test (actually Dottie got it as my anniversary gift). Got it in a week ago and sent back. Now I just have to wait for the results. Not really sure what it will tell me since my Thompson line is through my grandmother who had my dad out of wedlock.
Oh well, I guess we'll see.

Got it back but mostly it says I'm from the British Isles/Ireland/Western Europe. I have no idea how to read the raw data.
