Discovering my DNA - Engineer Mommy /* ]]> */

This is a sponsored post written by me for Living DNA. All opinions are mine alone.

I have always had a strong interest in my family tree! I’ve often wondered about where my ancestors came from. I knew where my parents came from and even the generation or two before them… but what about ten generations ago? Or even thousands and thousands of years ago? When I recently had the opportunity to explore my ancestry through a Living DNA 3-in-1 Kit, I jumped at the opportunity! Through their high definition DNA testing, it’s possible to let science put our ancestry into context.

The 3-in-1 Living DNA Ancestry Kit is easy to use. Simply start by swabbing a cotton wand across your inner cheek and send it off to the lab via the postage-paid envelope. After several weeks, you’ll be notified that your sample has been processed and you can log onto the online portal and view your results. Convenient and practical!

Thanks to the technology behind the 3-in-1 Ancestry DNA Kit, you can discover plenty of details about where your family came from:

  • Pinpoint percentage breakdowns for your ethnicity within 80 worldwide regions, regardless of how unique your ancestry is!
  • Trace your motherline and see how your maternal ancestors moved around the world over many centuries!
  • Trace your fatherline (only if you are male) and see how your paternal ancestors spread out throughout the globe over thousands of years.

Why should you choose a Living DNA Kit? Here are a few reasons why I’m loving this kit:

  • It’s possible to determine what proportion of your DNA comes from different geographical regions both today and at different periods in history. You can see your results on in-depth maps, charts and facts. All of this complicated data is condensed into an easy-to-understand format.
  • A simple cheek swab is all it takes to get started. The whole process is confidential and secure and Living DNA upholds strict quality & security standards. You can even choose to delete your data once you’ve accessed it, if you’d like.
  • It’s possible to get your DNA Ancestry results printed into a beautiful book that’s fit for any coffee table! Perfect as a keepsake, this book will also include additional facts & trivia, such as the history of DNA.

My experience with this kit has been awesome. While I knew my family tree going back a few generations, I didn’t really know much beyond that point, so the results of my kit has been truly enlightening.

  1. I did a DNA kit about 2 years ago and I was absolutely fascinated by the results. There were definitley a few surprises in there.

  2. I need to try this out. I’m curious on where I came from. I know my dad did this, but I can’t remember the results.

  3. My husband and I did this several years ago as gifts to each other. We had so much fun finding out the results. I do our family history so perfect for us.

  4. My husband and I have talked about doing this over the past few months. It would be cool to see how far back they can go.

  5. I did this a couple of years ago and was a little surprised with the results. I’m giving three of these kits as Christmas gifts for family members who want to do theirs. It was really fun for me.

  6. I’ve done one of these before, it was really interesting to see where I came from. I’m very Europen not that. that is a surprise.

  7. I’ve always been interested in doing a DNA kit, to discover my heritage. I find the whole process fascinating.

  8. I have not even done a kit like this. Thankfully, generations before my parents did this all the good old fashioned way and I have such a beautiful chronicle of my maternal line.

  9. This would be a wonderful gift idea for my family members. Looking forward to looking into trying this.

  10. What surprised you the most about the results? I’ve been curious about doing a DNA test like this one, but have just not gotten around to it. Thanks for the reminder to get on it!!

  11. I want to do this so badly! I’m pretty sure I know, but everyone I know that’s gotten one has found out things their Grandparents didn’t tell them.

  12. I have wanted to do this for a while. I love that they get into the history so well into the heritage of the person. There is a lot of unanswered questions in my heritage and family history so this would be amazing to do!

  13. I would love to do this too because my paternal family’s last name is hispanic but I have no clue why. I should do this to find out the answers to my questions.

  14. We did this last Christmas and it was a blast! We learned so much and blamed our bad habits on our heritage! Ha!

  15. Oh gosh, I would love to do a DNA test thing! I think it would be so interesting to see where I came from!!

  16. I haven’t done one yet. I really want to an have heard great reviews on this one. 🙂

  17. I did that last year. I was very surprised with the results! Hubby is doing it this year!

  18. I love services like this one that allow you to learn more about your family’s past. I’ve always wanted to learn more about my dad’s side of the family.
