Awhile back I decided that I wanted to get to know my background more so I got a Ancestry.com test.
When I first got the kit, I was nervous. I thought you just needed to swab your cheek but nope, you have to spit into a test tube!
It actually was really easy and Ancestry.com had really detailed instructions on how to do it. Once I was done, I just popped it into the mailbox and then, I waited.
A few weeks later I got email saying my results were in! I thought I was mostly Irish but it turns out I’m mostly German, I showed my parents my results and they told me about relatives I use to have in the Czech Republic which also explains my results. This was a super fun way of getting to know my heritage better. If you want order a test, visit
