I have always been fascinated by my family history and over the years have worked on our ancestry quite a bit. I have connected with distant relatives and on my father's side we can trace our ancestors back to the 1500s in England! While I know it is incredible to go back so many generations, I still had to wonder what about my heritage. Is there Native American blood in our line? Were my mother's Lithuanian grandparents ancestor's from Poland, Germany or perhaps from across the Baltic Sea in Norway?
When DNA tests became more mainstream, I began to get even more curious. I mean, I know I get my green eyes from my Dad and my dimples from my mom, but who am I? What am I? My sisters and I share so many characteristics with one another and with our parents.
For Christmas, Mr. Juggling Act got me a 23andMe DNA kit and I was over the moon excited to learn more about myself in this new and exciting way. 23andMe is one of the top 1- DNA Test Kits available (source).
23andMe is a genetic service that helps you understand what your 23 pairs of chromosomes - your DNA - say about your health, traits and ancestry. 23andMe is the first and only genetic service available directly to you that includes reports that meet FDA standards. Get a snapshot view of your DNA with more than 60 detailed reports on your health, traits and ancestry, plus tools to explore and compare your DNA with family and friends. As new genetic discoveries are made and as we are able to clear new reports through the FDA, you’ll receive updates. How it works. It takes just 3 simple steps. Order your kit and provide a saliva sample from home. Mail it back to the CLIA-certified lab. Then you’ll be notified when your reports are ready online. This service is exclusively online. You'll receive your genetic reports through a password-protected account at 23andMe.com, and you'll have access to additional web-based tools and features.
How fun! I've done 23 and me - now I need to get it for my family members - perfect gift for dad!!

I did this and it was really neat. I wish I had known about this before I lost my dad to cancer.
