After a long wait, my Ancestry DNA results are finally in! So far, there are not too many surprises. My 'genetic ethnicity' is 91% British Islands. My closest matches are predicted 4th cousins - which is not surprising considering that the vast majority of people in the Ancestry DNA database at present are based in the USA.
I will post more when I have had a better chance to look at the results.
By the way, if this post looks funny, that's because I'm blogging from my new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 smartphone. This post is a an experiment.
