I did something today I have wanted to do for a number of years. I didn''t do it previously because I couldn't really justify spending the money on a non-essential, but now I'm a bit ahead money wise so I did it:
I ordered a DNA kit from ancestry.com so I can see from whence I came.
If you just go by family ethnicity, I am German and Swedish, but... I have been told twice by different doctors that I have something (a discoloration on my eye, and a discoloration on my gums) which they told me they have never seen on a white person. Hmmmmm... of course part of me is hoping I have something more interesting than German/Swedish DNA so we'll see.
I ordered the kit, and when you get it, you supply saliva in a tube and send it back and then it takes six to eight weeks... so stand by for the results.
