Last year, before my sister passed, I sent off for the DNA kit from Ancestry. One BIG reason, was I always thought, since I was a kid - that I wasn't my Dad's daughter. I didn't look like him. Everyone, including his family, said I looked like my Mom and that they could not see, my Dad in me. I loved my dad, dearly so this hurt. My sister, being a typical bratty little sister, would rub it in and that bothered me even more.
So when I found out, that I could not get DNA from my dad's ponytail (yes my dad had a long, white ponytail) I saw the ads for the kit. My sister wasn't interested, so she said...
I received it, just after she died. I let it sit in my closet until this past May.
I had to conjure a bunch of spit - That was kinda hard. It took about 6 weeks and I was so surprised when I got back the results.
I had always been told, we had Cherokee - and that I was Dutch, Irish, Scotch and German. My ancestry heritage comes from:
I'm 100% European
23% Great Britain
16% Western Europe
1% Iberian Peninsula
I guess there is a Viking in the family woodpile....
PS: Oh and yes, I am my dad's biological daughter. In fact, I have 28 DNA circles just from his side of the family. Who'd of known???
