Six weeks ago I shared my neighbor’s story with you (click here to read the blog post). I sat down with Mary a couple of days ago and showed her the AncestryDNA results.

Mary couldn’t wipe the smile off her face as we went over her results. At almost 90 years of age, she said to me:

Life keeps giving me more to learn about. I wasn’t sure exactly where we’re from in Africa, but we knew we had an English line in there somewhere. Looks like we have everything but the dog catcher in us.”

Thanks to cutting-edge genetic science from AncestryDNA, we are now able to make new discoveries about our ethnic origins, learning about the people and cultures that have been a part of our ancestral heritage for centuries.
