Learning about your heritage can come in the form of family stories, traditions passed down and even family heirlooms. But, it can also come in the form of learning your MyHertiage DNA. About two months ago, Kevin and I were introduced to a really cool company called MyHertiage. MyHeritage is the leading global destination for discovering, preserving and sharing family history. Their DNA kits make it easy for anyone, anywhere to embark on a meaningful journey into their past and treasure their family stories for generations to come.
I have a huge family that extends quite far with first and second cousins so tracking everyone down is quite a task. While, Kevin knows some about his recent family history, neither of us have a lot of information dating further back, so when we had the chance to tryMyHertiage DNA, we were all for it! It is so interesting to learn your ancestry and while asking your parents and grandparents can produce some results, it was so interesting to get the ancestry composition reports back! It was exciting to finally know once and for all the different cultures that are a part of us!
With MyHeritage Ethnicity Estimate, it uncovers a percentage breakdown of your ethic origins form 42 different ethnicities. Once we received the report, we were really surprised to learn that Kevin’s DNA is made up of 73.4% english, 9.3 Iberian, 6.8% Irish, Scottish and Welsh, 6.3% Baltic, and 4.2 % Ashkenazi Jewish. This was really surprising to us because Kevin had always heard that he had some Native American in his genes and the report didn’t yield that information.
It was such a great experience learning your history and where you come from. You also see possible DNA matches based on similarities between DNA.
