ANCESTRY DNA RESULTS ARE IN!

Months ago, I sent in my DNA to Ancestry.com and now I have my results that reflect my genetic ethnicity, going back up to ten generations! I'm still figuring out how to exactly use this information but one of the exciting things is that they found two 4th cousins that are a 96% match.

I've contacted them and now am just waiting to hear back. I know I shouldn't get my hopes too high, but I have visions of them having family photos we've never seen or awesome family memorabilia. We shall see....

I'm:
53% Scandinavian - Denmark, Norway and Sweden
41% Central European - Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland..
6% Other

Although we already knew it, my father will be so excited to know we do, indeed, have Viking blood. We have the DNA.
