Has anyone here ever gotten one of those home DNA tests?

Well, I finally ordered my AncestryDNA kit today. Should be here sometime before the new year. Of course, results take up to 8 weeks after I submit my sample. This is a busy time of year for them too.

Can't wait to run my raw data through codegen.eu and see all the cancers I will get.

dont do it... i just checked mine and apparently i have several changes that increase my risk of breast cancer! about the only thing right was a couple of mentions of reduced risk of baldness. 60 and a full head of hair. there are a lot of misleading things and if you want to see bad things then you could convince yourself easily. on a lighter note it says that viagra is more effective...lol

Well, my kit arrived, but since the mail doesn't run again until Monday, I don't think I'll open it quite yet.

Meh, I couldn't wait. I opened it and used the activation code. Now in the next half hour I'm going to prepare my sample for shipment, even though I don't think I'll be putting it in the mail until Monday. Mail doesn't run tomorrow, of course.

Hmm, the mailman didn't take my sample today. I suppose it's because it was in my mailbox instead of the outgoing mailbox. I can't fit the sample package through the slot in the outgoing mailbox though. I'm going to have to get staff to open it for me.

Well, I put my sample in the outgoing mailbox, but the mailman simply didn't come by today. This is starting to get annoying.

My sample was picked up yesterday and is supposed to arrive at Ancestry on January 3rd. In the meantime, I've resubscribed to Ancestry so I can clean up my family tree. I don't want any of my DNA matches to see a messy tree.

You know, I've always said I have no family history of diabetes, but apparently my great grandfather Taylor had a sister who died from diabetes, according to her death certificate. Oh well.
