23andMe DNA Test Results: Who am I?!

Episode 71: 23andMe DNA Test Results!
I’ve never known my genetic background with any real certainty, so why not utilize all the awesome tech tools at my disposal to get some answers?

I signed up for the 23andMe ancestry DNA test, and found the entire process FASCINATING! This isn’t a sponsored video, I just chose 23andMe because they seemed to have simple, straightforward, legitimate process. In this video, I walk you through the steps to send off your DNA sample as well as show some of the information you get in the results.

I didn’t even have time to go into the haplogroups, which it turns out, is completely mind-blowing!
