Deoxyribonucleic Acid Trip

23andMe just strengthened its findings and sent me an update to my 2016 report. I’m still exactly what I thought I was — paternal grandparents were both Irish; maternal grandmother was German, maternal grandfather was Lithuanian. (Jury’s still out on the rumor that my mom’s grandfather was the illicit love child of a Jewish man — 0.3% seems awfully low.) Truthfully, though, the only reason I shelled out 200 bucks was in the hope that a familial DNA search by law enforcement would turn up a serial killer — anything to have something new to talk about at the next family reunion.

I'm thinking of doing this in hopes that I have African ancestry. That would freakout the white supremacists in my family.
