Stranger Than Most
By SUSAN LAUTZ, LPC
For Christmas, my husband spent $69.95 to have an Ancestry.com test kit sent my way. I provided the requisite amount of spit and waited. Meanwhile, the website deluged me with offers to trace my family and download old documents. So far I haven’t bitten, but we shall see. Then, I finally got notification that my results were ready.
I know from research done by other family members that we mostly come from England and Germany. But I had still hoped for some surprises. Maybe a little American Indian, Pacific Islander, or even Neanderthal made it into the mix? After all, there’s the official family story and then there’s what REALLY happened. (And DNA don’t lie!)
