When we were growing up, we knew we were Italian, Scottish and Dutch on daddy’s side. And French, Irish and American Indian on mom’s side. What of we could find out more, we barely have any information about Grandpa, all his was burned when Elis Island burned years ago, we have no idea how old he was when he passed away.
So when I heard about AncestryDNA, I knew I had to do it, its simple to use and can be done in seconds and then all you have to do is wait for the results. When your results arrive, you’ll see a breakdown of your ethnicity—and it may contain a few surprises. Then, you can start learning more about the places where your family story began.
How exciting would that be, I can hardly wait for them to get back, imagine if I learn something new, the suspense is making me feel like it’s forever and it been a week. How this works is very simple AncestryDNA is a simple saliva test you can do in the comfort of your home. Once you order, you will receive the AncestryDNA kit in the mail in a matter of days. Your AncestryDNA kit includes full instructions, a saliva collection tube, and a pre-paid return mailer (so you don’t have additional costs to return your DNA.) After returning your sample by just dropping it in the mail, your DNA is processed at the lab.
Your AncestryDNA test results will take about 6-8 weeks to process from the time that the lab receives your DNA sample. Due to high demand, results may take longer than eight weeks. Please note that you must also activate your DNA kit online to begin processing.
With more than 2 million people now in our database and the unique ability to connect with Ancestry’s billions of historical records and millions of family trees, AncestryDNA can help deliver the richest family stories—and solve the toughest family mysteries. Maybe I can meet some of grandpa’s relatives, that we don’t know and find out more about him and his family. There was only a couple that came over on the boat, from Italy we know them. This is exciting we can meet the family on both sides of the family, we never knew.
Once you’ve taken your test, we’ll search our global network of AncestryDNA members and identify the people who share your DNA. There’s no limit to what you might discover—together.
