My Ethnic Ingredients

So, awhile back I took the Family Finder DNA test.  This test is marketed by Family Tree DNA and is an autosomal DNA test.  Autosomal DNA tests can be used for genetic matching with relatives– up to about 5 generations in the past.   

Along with the genetic matching feature, the test has a report called “myOrigins”.  The myOrigins report is an estimate of your ethnic makeup and a map of where your ancestors could have come from.  I am not sure how helpful this will be in searching for my roots; nevertheless it is an interesting report.
