I’ve never been interested in checking my DNA. I thought it might take the fun out of all my exploring but lately I’ve been thinking it would be interesting. Those who have spoken with me about their experience, have said positive things about it. Because I delve deeper into genealogy, I believe I could benefit from the connections that the test provides. Something that is important to me is sharing what I know of my ancestry with those who have the same surname. Not that I want to give a plug to ancestry.com but I would love to see who I share DNA with and they make some nice connections for you if you go through 23andme. At least that’s the impression I get, even though not all reviews are positive. I’m in no hurry to sign up but sometime this year, I may give it a try. I’ll let you know. Maybe we are related.
