Would you like to get a DNA test done?

I always see those commercials for Ancestry.com where people find out their ancestry is something different than they thought. I am pretty confident about my genetics, but I guess there could be a surprise. I always was hoping to have native american blood somewhere in the family tree, but since most of my ancestors were blue eyed blondes. that probably isn't going to happen. I don't think there is a brown eyed one in the bunch!

My DNA breakdown from ancestry
@snowy22315 Haven't had the pleasure of which? Talking to me or having a DNA swab done by the police? I would not recommend doing a DNA Test just to see if you have Native American genes. It isn't likely to show up, no matter how close your supposed ancestry is. My father (to look at him) appears very much Native American. His great grandfather (or something to that effect, I'm never quite certain) was supposedly mostly Native American. No trace in my DNA. Of course we get 50 / 50 from our parents. Even that 50 / 50 isn't a guarantee. This might help you understand it all a bit more ... https://youtu.be/geE7zsehccY I've also included my DNA breakdown from ancestry so you can sort of get an idea of how it will look.

@snowy22315 -- not me, specifically, but you never know what evil lurks in the heart of man (but the Shadow knows! ). I worry about that because I can't name you a thing that started out admirably that didn't get corrupted or scammed.

I assume mine would be pretty straightforward (I'm of Japanese descent) although I know the Japanese are comprised of various Asian groups from way back when. But it would be interesting to know Hubby's side . . . we only know what his parents told him - and even they did not know a whole lot about their family tree.

Some Americans get really Americanized luike most of my family if the relatives have been in the country along time some neither no nor care what their lineage was. My one grandfather didn't even know what the heritage was on his dads side.

@snowy22315 That sounds like Hubby's side of the family. They know generally about their heritage, but not much. Yah, I guess it gets "lost" with further generations.

@much2say Personally, I would want to know, but I guess not everybody puts a value on it.

I've thought about it, but as far back as my family was ever able to trace, everyone in my background seems to be from Italy. I'd hate to pay the money and then be told what I already know! lol

@CRK109 Probably not much, just a conversation piece.

I saw this video where the participants were really sure of their lineage only to get the shock of their life.

Yeah it would be interesting. A good TV show is finding your roots on pbs that goes thru historical records tobfindf celebrities heritage.

This would be a very interesting thing to have done. There could always be a surprise somewhere along the way.

It would be fun to see what your heritage is. My grandmother knew family names from way back, and I checked some of them when I was in England..some were Norman names. She liked to do family tree research and traced my grandfathers heritage back to Central Germany, and my dad's side is Swedish and German.

I really don't like the idea of adding my DNA to some sort of data base where who knows will have access.
