Review: Discovering my ancestry with Living DNA

Review: Discovering my ancestry with Living DNA

Have you ever wondered where you come from? I have always had an intrinsic interest in my family history. I’ve spent hours, days even, scouring genealogy sites. I’ve put together a huge family tree and learnt a lot about my ancestry. Whilst in parts I’ve got back as far as the 13th century, I still have a thirst for knowledge.

DNA ancestry tests have really intrigued me since I first found out about them. Everything I’ve found out so far shows my ancestors in England, Wales, Ireland and Germany. As such, I’ve been curious to find out whether my ancestors have always remained in this part of the globe, as they have been for the last few hundred years.
