Description: The article below concentrates on the topic of ancestry login. The author shows you when she received the box and what was inside the ancestry box. Along with the results the author was definitely surprised, interested and determined in learning about the history of her heritage.
Today I am going to show you ancestry DNA box, I went online to order an ancestor DNA kit because I’ve been wanting this for the longest time, Eric has got it for me, I patiently waited 7 days for it to finally get to my hands, those are extremely long days because I am extremely excited about this.
For me I want to go a little bit more into it, it’s personal for me, I want to see what else I have in my heritage, the only information I have based on that is that my parents tell me that grandparents are from Mexico, I want to see if there’s a little bit of a mix of something else in there, so Eric bought it for me as an early Christmas gift.
I’m sure by the time I get the results, it’ll be after Christmas, here’s the box, it’s a little gray box that I got through the mail, the price is about $100 for the kit, but since it’s on a cyber Monday deal, I got it for only 60 bucks plus the shipping and handling.
I have an opening, I’m excited to show you what’s inside of it, I’m not going to do the whole thing, but I am going to show you what is included in case you want to try, I’m opening it, there is a little pamphlet, it says to activate kit online, they gather the DNA.
The collection back is where my DNA goes into as far as the tube, I put it in here, it’s like a little bag, it literally looks like toilet paper, this is where my spit, here’s the tube, the black line is here, I have to fill that much up with spit.
I’m not going to include that, place the cube in the collection bag and mail in your sample, it seems to be easy but it’s not going to be easy for me because I’ve been wanting this for a long time, it takes six to eight weeks for you to finally get your results on email.
I’m not very patient but I’m going to save you the anticipation, I am going to ship this out, I get the results in about six to eight weeks, I’m going to save you the anticipation, let’s skip to the results, before I said that it was about this much wrong, I finally did it with my spit in it.
Let’s get back to the time-travel, the results are in, it’s so exciting, I had told you that it was going to take six to eight weeks for me to get the results in, it also warned me that there’s a high demand, it might take even longer, that was a bummer for me.
It took four weeks and I have the result, I am so excited, before we get started, they updated me when the DNA was sent, when they received it, it’s being processed, you’re not at the edge of your seat the whole time wondering if they got it, they keep you updated, that’s a good thing about ancestry DNA.
I have the results here, they don’t send it out in email, they send it through your email, as far as the results go, I did not expect this, I didn’t know how I was going to get the results, I know that they take it from so many different regions over a hundred and thirty plus different regions ethnicities.
But I didn’t think this was going to be possible, it says that I am fifty three percent Native American, it collected it or it says that it’s mainly from northeastern Mexico and South Texas which I am from Texas, that’s accurate, it also says that the Native American comes from northern Mexico and South Texas.
I have a hard time saying that, I mean I didn’t even know that was an area, I’ve only been to Mexico for a few times, that’s fifty three percent Native American, I cannot believe it, I did not think that I was fifty three percent Native American, that is amazing but the only downside about this is that it doesn’t tell me more deep into the results.
I am excited for that, I am amazed by that, it also says that I am 22% Iberian Peninsula, that means Spain Portugal area, when I told my mother that I was going to do the DNA test, she said I know that you’re somewhat Spaniard, I could see it from your father’s side.
Honestly I didn’t think I was any part of it, but I am 22% Spaniard, I’m also nine percent Greece Italy area, let’s go to the low confidence regions, it also says that I’m 2% Europe West, 2% Senegal and 2% European Jewish, it also says 2% Ireland Scotland Wales, 2% Middle East, 1% Asia East and 1% African.
Honestly I don’t care about the rest of the low confidence regions, I think it’s amazing, when I’m asked what I am, I could say literally Native American, I’m still amazed by this, this is exciting, I’m pleased about the results, I told my mother and father the results.
My father went a little bit deeper into it, my father has dark hair and light skin, my mother has dark hair, she has more of the tan features, it’s funny because when I got the results, I was thinking that there has to be some type of Filipino in there because I’ve been asked that, I look like Filipino.
My mother and I have the features of it, people even think that we’re Filipino, but the results were nothing like that, it’s more of the Native American side, but my father is more Spaniard because he told me that his dad side are descendants from Spain.
That’s exciting, I guess that his father’s side is also from around the Cancun area, he felt positive that this is accurate, I’m excited honestly, it’s funny because my husband’s father side is from Zacatecas, that’s exciting, what I’ve heard in my family tree is that we were around from the Jalisco area.
They’re in the same areas, that’s crazy because our families originate almost from the same areas, he now wants to try to come to the ancestry DNA, I don’t know if he’s going to do it, I want to see what he is, we all think that his long side is completely Native American, they have the features of it as well.
Honestly he was surprised when it says that I’m Native American, we did not think this at all, I’m amazed by this, I am very happy, I’m very pleased to share with you, what do you think that I was before I shared the results with you?
Please tell me in the comments below, I’m excited to see what you think that I was, thank you so much for reading, I’m excited and I’m glad that I can include you in this, I will keep posting.
