Finally!!! After Months (literally months) of waiting I finally got my results from my Ancestry DNA kit test! I was honestly overwhelmed by the results. Here is my reaction. I laughed, I cried. I am so happy Technology has brought us so far. Para los que hablan español: Aqui les comparto los resultados de mi ADN. El analysis fue para descubrir los porcentajes de grupos etnicos que forman parte de mi herencia. I got a lot of questions about why I was crying. I wrote a reply to hopefully better illustrate why I was crying: I was crying out of happiness! :D For me I always knew my family had a mixture of different ethnic backgrounds. My mother's grandparents claimed a lot of european ancestry. I think it is a source of "pride" among some of the older generation, the idea that european is better. I have never liked this way of thinking. but I wasn't sure how much I had of any one of the different ethnic groups. I knew because of colonialism I had European and Native American ancestry, but I had never heard about any African ancestry, so I wanted to know what ethnic mix I was and what the rough percentage of each group was. The main reason I decided to get my DNA tested is because I didn't want to guess what ethnic groups my ancestors came from. I wanted something a little bit more substantial. Previous to that all I had were stories with few details. I am definitely interested in seeing how far I can trace my genealogy and if I can find any names of people who were African and Native American. In the moment when I saw how large of a percentage of Native American I was I was so surprised. I feel like I always connected to my Native roots and I suppose this really confirmed something I always felt inside. I honestly didn't know what to expect for African ancestry and I can't tell you how overjoyed I was to see I do in fact have African roots. I think what surprised me the most was knowing the test results could tell me specifically where in Africa my ancestors came from. Thanks for your questions. I appreciate your respect and honest curiosity. I can understand why it might be confusing to see me crying for a happy reason. I hope this helps clarify that :) Music/Música: Sideways Samba by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artist: http://audionautix.com/ Sandcastles by The Green Orbs
