Get to Know Your Roots and Ethnic Origins with MyHeritage

A couple of months ago I have shared a round up of gift ideas for Dads and Grads. One of the gift option I have featured is MyHeritage DNA testing kit. In my honest opinion, this by far is one of the most unique surprise one could ever give. Whether it’s for a loved one or a friend. It’s gender neutral too! With occasions and celebration taking place all year-long (on top of the holidays), there’s always a room for this kit to be given away.

Many of us have stories of who our grandparents were even our great grandparents were. This may have given you an idea of your heritage. What many people don’t realize though is that DNA is tricky. Just because your grandmother was half Cherokee doesn’t mean you will be part Cherokee. In other words, you won’t truly know what your DNA is until you have it tested. That’s where MyHeritage.com comes into play. However, the site has so much more to offer. Let’s take a closer look at the site and what it has to provide.

DNA Testing
Imagine being able to simply swab your cheek, mail in the results, and 4 weeks later not only learn your ethnic background but discover people who share your DNA. MyHeritage.com, DNA Testing is a simple to use test that tells you where you’re from. If you’ve always wondered if you were part Indonesian or part Irish, you’ll finally have the answer.

The test costs only $49 (holidays promotion) making it more affordable than other sites that offer similar services. Once you have your results, you’ll be able to see others who share your DNA.

DNA Testing Results
Shortly after sending our kit to the lab, we were prompted of the progress and the result in just a few weeks. MyHeritage can be accessed online and through an iOs or Android app. Making it even more easier for users to access their information.

Hubby only knows he is African American. My mother in law back then have shared that they have part Native American in their blood. His test result came back with a whopping 11 ethnicities! We were like WHAT??? Surprising us with a 52% Nigerian and only 17.2% West African.

As for me, I am half Korean and half Filipina. My obvious dominant trait is my Korean side. Except, my DNA makeup consist of 38.4% Filipino, Indonesian and Malaysian. 26.5% Chinese and Vietnamese, plus 35.1% divided into 3 more.

    I don’t know if some people will fare better, but I looked into several companies that do DNA ancestry testing and I wasn’t convinced that they would be able to give me accurate results. I think I’ll do a little more research though, because I am truly interested to discover my history.

    This sounds so fascinating!! I’d love to try My Heritage at some point, My Grandfather started building his Geanological tree many years ago and he tracked up to the 9th generation of his ancestors, but it was very difficult because those registers were ancient!
