The second part of Christmas happened on Christmas Day and it was very exciting! I got my ancestryDNA results!
WOW! Not only do I have a heritage, it’s the COOLEST heritage there is! Jewish! I’ve always liked Jewish-sounding music (Hava Nagila being the only piano piece I can still play), but never thought it was anything other than just a love of the rhythm.
It turns out that there is an option on the ancestry.com site that I was able to opt in or out of my information being made available for making connections. I opted out of that for now as I’m not ready to go that direction. Right now, it’s just enough to know where I come from.
