Finally Taking my DNA Test

 Hi, everyone. If you checked out Wednesday’s podcast, you might recall that I had been struggling with some of my family connections. I have some missing links for my family ancestry. I also have a DNA kit from 23andMe and I have yet to take the test!

I thought I would go ahead and take the DNA test today and send off the results. I would also use that as a way to reconnect with some of my less familiar family members. I thought that would be a great way to start the conversation and ask if they know if anyone else in the family has taken the test. Then I could follow up with questions about people's dates of birth and legal names, especially my paternal grandfather. I also hope to find more about myself along the way once I get my DNA test back. 

After way too much procrastination, I am ready to take my test!

Here is a little unboxing so you can see what is in the box.

Everything you need is packed in this little box.

No eating or drinking 30 minutes prior; way easier than taking a Covid-19 test.

I recommend that you get fully hydrated so you can easily spit into the tube. 
Pack it back up in the box and toss it in a USPS mailbox to be picked up.

Have you had any struggles connecting with your relatives? I would love to hear your thoughts! Please feel free to comment below, or head on over to MMC chat, our Facebook group where you can join in on the conversation!
