Fifty years from now, your grandchildren will look on Facebook and know everything about you. What you ate for breakfast, who you dated before their grandfather, what you hated most about your job.
Too bad our ancestors didn’t leave such detailed narratives!
People spend countless time researching their ancestry and putting together the pieces. Ancestry.com makes the search and documentation easier.
ANCESTRY.COM FAMILY TREE
After creating an Ancestry.com account, you can add the names and pictures of your family to an online family tree using the information stored in Facebook.
After completing a few levels of my family tree, I was surprised at “hints” letting me know that Ancestry.com had access to files about my Grandmother.
I was excited for the results of my DNA test and couldn’t wait to get my results. If you’re interested in starting your own journey to discover your ancestors, the process is uber easy. Here’s a quick step by step of the Ancestry.com DNA kit.
ANCESTRY.COM DNA KIT
The process is super easy. Don’t eat, drink or smoke for thirty minutes before starting the test.
1. Fill the tube with saliva. There’s a line marked on the tube to let you know how much you’ll need. Don’t overfill the tube!
2. Close the funnel lid. You’ll hear a clicking sound and a solution will be released into the tube.
3. Unscrew the funnel lid from the tube. Replace it with the small cap. Twist it on tightly.
4. Shake the tube for five seconds. Then put the tube in the storage bag and seal it.
5. Put your sample into the mailing envelope and drop it in the mail. I didn’t even have to provide the stamp!
6. Now’s the hard part. Waiting for results!
