Mine came in! Very excited to see the different stuff I can research. My Grandma also got her results which gives an even bigger picture of my background.

I found it interesting that my G-Grandfather was born in Norway (100% Norwegian) yet I only inherited 4% Scandinavian.

I plug in and out of ancestry. I join for a month or two, every year or so. I tweak the family tree and then unjoin again. You can still add a new baby, or edit existing information on your tree while you are not an active member.

I’m eagerly awaiting my DNA results too.

Thanks for the info. I recently retyped my, and my husband's, trees (over 200 people) onto Ancestry. I was worried that I would not be able to access it once I unsubscribed.

See my thread Family tree and DNA general instructions to learn how to back up your tree GEDcom file and download to your computer so you don't have to keep retyping it

I do the same thing, $99 a year is a bit expensive.

I have traced my family back to the mid 1640’s in Paris (a lot of Chaudron and Mercier). For those of you with a lot of French ancestry, do the results accurately show that? I mailed my test about a week ago.

That was not my experience. Again, it depends on how busy they are.
