DNA results

I got the results of my National Geographic Genographic DNA analysis this morning and there were a couple of mild surprises.

I'd supposed my Flora DNA was mostly from Germany or Switzerland. Turns out, it's 56% Great Britain and Ireland and 19% Scandinavian, 12% Southern Europe, 11% Eastern Europe (that would include Germany), and a puzzling 3% Arabia.

The DNA kits were a Christmas gift from Steve and Nicky. We finally got around to sending in our samples on Jan. 29, so it takes awhile to get results.

I have only 1.2% Neanderthal DNA, compared with 2.1% for the average homo sapiens. I'll take that as a good thing.

Still waiting for notification on Maria's test, but it should show up very soon.
