For Christmas I received two DNA tests, one from FtDNA and the other from 23 and Me. I am super excited, the 23 and Me is for my dh’s family and the results should be available in about four weeks. The FtDNA test is a Y-DNA test for my O’Connell line. FtDNA gives me two dates for results; the 12 marker should be available on 3/29 and the 25 and 37 markers on 4/13 (the final date has moved by ten days since it originally was posted).
I am super excited about getting these results. For the Y-DNA, I hoping to find some genetic connections that might assist me in moving this line further back. A girl can dream, right? This is the line that is always a major brick wall and I would love to crash it completely. But, I will be realistic and hope that it will provided with at least a few clues to the next generation.
The 23 and Me test on my dh’s line will be interesting, according to the family information we have he should be 1/4 Scottish, 1/4 Irish, 1/4 Russian and 1/4 Italian. I cannot wait to see how it really breaks down for them.
