    1. It is really interesting to see the results! The coolest thing is that you can have more of one ethnicity in your DNA than a sibling. For example, according to my DNA results, I’m more Italian than my own twin brother and he’s more Irish!

    1. That is absolutely awesome. This test and others can definitely help you with that. You can find cousins with fully developed and verified trees and oftentimes find the link. I’d be happy to help you find the connection Nick!

  1. I am just excited to learn more about my ancestors. Both my parents aren’t 100% sure about their roots and I would like to learn more. Thanks Katie!!

  2. I would love to get to know more about my DNA roots as unfortunately I didn’t ask that much about my heritage from my parents who both passed away when I was in my 20’s. As I’ve gotten older I’ve become much more curious about my ancestry and wish I would have asked my parents more about it.

    1. It’s definitely helpful when our relatives are still with us but the good news is – if you take these tests and match highly with someone else, oftentimes they can fill in many of the blanks. Thanks for entering Ami.

  3. I have always been interested in finding about my ancestors. I guess mostly my Scottish side. I also have a little bit a of mystery from my grandfathers side. He was adopted at a young age and my last name actually should be different than what it is. I would love to win the kit to find out the information I do not know because of the adoption.

  4. I am interested to find out about my ancestors on my mom’s side. My fathers father did alot of digging on that side- and my aunt did the DNA kit- and found out some cool results- so i am really interested to see how it would turn out.
    I would also actually like to do it on my son Lucas- because his father isn’t part of his life- i am really interested about that part of him…

  5. Kate, like you I am missing an entire branch of my family history. All I have is a suspicion that’s where my French Canadian roots come from. I’ve always been intrigued but have never invested the time into this research.

  6. I’ve been working on my genealogy for years and have come to a dead end because of a lack of records/contradictory stories so I would love to know where my family really came from–especially my dad’s side–there’s a big unknown with his great grandpa.

  7. I’m looking forward to seeing how my DNA looks compared to my family tree that I’ve been working on for quite some time.
