Now waiting at 8 weeks (it was supposed to be 6 to 8 weeks for the results), I looked back at the original brochure and saw that the results are posted at the ancestry.com site, and not mailed. Which makes sense.
So I eagerly went to ancestry.com and was sorely disappointed to see that I am just a boring white girl. I was so hoping for something -- anything! -- more exotic than what I am.
Here's my DNA breakdown:
50% Eastern Europe
[Poland, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Austria, Russia, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Lithuania, Latvia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia]
Sweden, Denmark, Norway
5% Great Britain
5%: Western European, Finland/Northern Russia, Ireland
I got temporarily excited when the website said "Click here for FULL report" and the first words my eyes saw were "Ivory Coast" and I got all excited for one second until I noticed the big ZERO next to that. So I'm zero on everything interesting and so this report confirmed what I had been told about my ancestry. I guess I should go eat some sausage or herring.
The other thing the report gives you is relatives (4th to 6th cousins) based on other people who have had their DNA tested. I'll have to go back and look at that more carefully, but I can't say it interests me that much.
