There’s so many ways to discover our own unique story through DNA testing and now it so easy to do without even leaving our home. My son and I took the AncestryDNA test a few months ago so I was excited to partner with Bloggin’ Mamas and its clients for this campaign. It’s important to learn your history and meet the family that came before you.
Your tree and Ancestry’s family records help you discover your unique story. With your AncestryDNA test you will discover more about your ethnicity and your living relatives. When my son and I took ours I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew quite a bit of our family history but knew there was a lot I didn’t know.
Taking the test is easy. You just spit (I know, kinda gross) in a small vial and send it off to a lab where they do their magic. I’d say we waited 3-4 weeks on our results which was quicker than I had expected. You can track your vial of spit as it’s shipped back, tested and when to expect your results.
Here’s an example of one of our DNA results:
Once we received our results we were able to see where our ancestors originated from and our ethnicity percentages. My son and I’s ethnicity was very similar with a very high percentage English, Wales and Northwestern Europe. I had a higher percentage from Ireland and Scotland while he had a higher percentage of Jewish. We also had a small percentage of Swedish. Isn’t this interesting?!?
With the current AncestryDNA special you can save $40 off the regular price of $99. Until 8/26/2019 the AncestryDNA kit will cost you only $59! It’s so worth the price and a great way to discover your unique story!
