DNA Profiling

Post by ed »

Finally did it, used these guys
crigenetics.com

Not quite sure what I bought, I'll figure it out when the time comes.

I am hoping for some sub-Saharan African connections, and some injun connections too. Then I can transcend "self-identification" and be a real injun/african. Cool? I should say so.

ETA. I have great-grandmother who was Italian, Sicilian if I recall correctly. That might be my entrée to the world of colored folk given the proximity to North Africa. Anyway, minority opportunities beckon.

I am looking into various funding opportunities for despised minorities. I shall overcome, to coin a phrase.

Anybody here do the dna thingie? Can SC get some sort of minority funding?

You'll be contacted by distant relatives you never knew you had and will wish you never had.

Cool. I'll offer them employment then get them indebted to the company store and work then unmercifully for 15-18 hrs/day.

It is positively Dickensonian.

Grandma was from Sicily and Grandpa was from northern Italy. They got along like cats and dogs.

English, Irish, Spanish and a smattering of European Jew. I was adopted and as such knew nothing of my ancestry, so it was fun to do. I have some new first cousins who knew nothing of my parentage, so otherwise, meh.

My kids are adopted too. One did a test and, among other things, got Ashkenazi (!) and Native American (!!).
