About a year ago I sent dna into both FTDNA and Ancestry.com. The results were very similar, as they should be, but there is a striking difference a year on: the Ancestry results are changing!
I found the original FTDNA map and it’s the same as today’s:
Of course I couldn’t find the original Ancestry map, but trust me… it’s different.
NOW I have Greek/Italian ancestors, albeit not many. And a smidgen of Jewish! I figure that’s Adam and Eve. Yes, Ancestry is just that good; they’ve traced my origins to the beginning of time.
Give them another year and I’ll be Pocahontas’ freaking cousin. How does that work? I know they figure in people’s ancestors who are related to me via DNA, but are they taking for granted ALL their predecessors are mine?
I need to try that DNA thing. I know my paternal grandparents emigrated from Sweden, but I don’t know much about my mom’s side.
It’s a hoot, and even if you know who your people are, there could be interesting surprises! Post it if you do! 😀
