DNA Fun


A club I belong to recently went to a luncheon at Rose State College where we had our DNA done. I got my results and only had two surprises. I knew it would come out English and French but it also came out one percent Finnish and one percent Asian. I found it very surprising that
my French Ancestor, a protestant named Leonard D'Ogue later
corrupted to Dozier, gave me ll percent of his DNA. The
other 87 percent was British.

It was fun and we got a lot of cousin matches, not that it mattered because we don't keep up with all our first
cousins, let along all the others.

I have been fascinated with the endless combinations and re-combinations of DNA since my first biology class. I had a teacher who made it alive and exciting. I am so glad that DNA testing has made it possible for rapists and other criminals to be convicted.

Try it, It is very interesting for the 80 dollar pricetag.

One time a hematologist told me the type of blood condition I have is mostly seen in people with African ancestry, so maybe I have more than the usual white person's share of African DNA, but I'm not in a hurry to find out.

I was surprised that I had no African dna, I thought almost everyone did.
But then several surprises are fun.

This makes me think of Gone With the Wind, all the French living in various places in the South.

Louisiana is fun to visit because so many French phrases are incorporated into English and Cajun speech. I love the way language evolves. I had a
British friend who told me our regional speech was atrocious. However, I
enjoy it. GWTW is one of my favorite movies next to Lawrence of Arabia.

I wanted one of my two nieces to do it since it really doesn't matter at my age. Of course, if it becomes cheaper I'll give it a shot, but I have better things to do with 79 bucks at this point.

Is it odd that I don't find this fascinating? My cousin was just telling me how she just found a bunch of stuff out and I was like.... meh

I'm with you on that. I ended up with all the family photos dating back to the 1880s, and I let the various relatives come paw through them and scan them to their thumb drives. I keep the pictures organized in envelopes by family, and I know who is related to whom, and so on, but it's not a passion. One of my second cousins is after me to have my DNA analyzed, and I pretty much said ....meh.

I found out some diet info. My hunter/gatherer ancestors don't metabolize starches well.

i had mine done with Ancestry.com, and it cost $100. mostly Greek, but i have trace amounts of Italian, Jewish, and Caucasus blood as in Ghengis Khan. Ed is sure of it. (pay no attention to that man behind the curtain).

We have a little ancient viking dna and that is almost as scary as Ghengis
Kahn.
