A couple of months ago I took an Ancestry DNA test. The results came back last week. I have a whole load of matches that will be useful in my research including a second cousin on my dad’s side. Some of the matches will take a lot more work to find the connection but I’m optimistic that it will prove worthwhile.
A lot of people take the test just to trace their ethnic origins. You can see my findings in the picture above. Not the most exotic mix but pretty much what I expected.
