I spat in a tube awhile back and sent my saliva to the Mormons so they could analyze it (a.k.a. I signed up for Ancentry.com’s DNA service).
My results came back, and I wasn’t too surprised. I was mostly Irish (78%) with a little Eastern Europe (18%) and a tiny bit of Scandinavian (2%).
I got an email from Ancestry that told me my DNA results had been updated, since they were able to match my DNA against more samples. I was excited to see what the results might be!
As you can see, it turns out I’m even less interesting than I thought. I’m now 84% from Ireland and Scotland (mostly Ulster) and 16% Englad/Wales/Northwestern Europe.
I’m no longer a Viking. Sigh.
