We all sent in our DNA kits right around the same time and for 3 of us who mailed from the same day from the same place, it was no surprise that we got our results back on the same day. There was a lot of excitement around here, a lot of comparing and a lot of surprises.
If you want to know what sort of surprises, check out the page titled "Lucky Bastard".
Since the time of getting those results, it has been frustrating to me personally because I have wanted to share all of the information and data with my sister. She was unable to access parts of the site where our test results were done like I was. So we played the waiting game.
The test results came in and we looked at the test. Unfortunately, the first day that you get the results, you do not have the country of origins portion of the test, so there is a little bit more patience required that first day.
We had our tests performed through Family Tree DNA. I heartily recommend them to anyone looking to have DNA testing done as they are extremely kind, fast to respond, and there is a toll free number if you have any questions or concerns about your test.
So, there we were, waiting. Speculating, looking at everything in my kit and talking about all of the what if's. It was fun, and it was nerve wracking. Now, here we are. Everyone's test is in. What do we do? There are a lot of specific questions that are being answered by these tests. It is the compiling of the information into a semblance of something logical that we have to do now. Is that vague? Yes, but we are trying to figure all of this out ourselves. I will keep updating as we have more information.
