My surprising DNA results

👋 Hey, it’s Sam. Getting my DNA results back this week has been a surreal experience.

Why it matters: A first and last name is all I’ve ever known about my biological father, so I purchased a kit from AncestryDNA to learn more about his family and whether I have siblings.

I became one of hundreds of thousands of people using mail-in DNA tests to trace lineage, find family members or learn more about where their ancestors are from.
One of the reasons I waited until now to do this was my apprehension to give my DNA to a private company.
