I've been holding back on returning my Ancestry.com DNA test kit. Why?
Probably for the same reason my wife and kids have never really seen me without a beard. My ethnic background for most of my life has been shrouded in mystery at least for 50 percent of me. I know with some degree of certainty that my mom came from a German background. My dad?
My wife researched my paternal background and to my surprise her research showed what appears a deep English background that goes back to the time of the Pilgrims.
Well, Saturday, I submitted my saliva test where I had to spit into a tube. Now I wait six weeks.
