Has anyone else done a test with where they spit in a tube and they determine where your ancestors were from? If you have, would you like to share your results?

I've done it myself, so here's my results...

I don't need no silly ancestry checker thingy that costs money. I have this!

Although I do admit that I have been curious to try the genealogy test that the National Geographic sponsored. It was some heavy duty experiment where they collected data across the world, to study mitochondrial DNA, in order to get conclusive data on ancestral human migration patterns. As an added bonus, they compare the results to genetic data they have on the Neanderthal (people of European and Asian ancestry will most likely carry around 1-2% relation to them, while people of African ancestry likely will not, which supports the theory of interbreeding).

I wouldn't be sure, but I reckon based on my distant relatives I know of that it would be something like this:

Great Britain: 40% (mostly my mum's side)
India?: 1% maybe (my mum's grandad was believed to have had a distant ancestor who was, even though all my family are white and I'm very pale)
Ireland: 30%
Northern Europe: 25% (where at least half of my dad's side descended from)
Southern Europe: 4%

I've been meaning to do that for a while now, I just completely forgot about it.

Thanks for reminding me!

In my case the result would probably be quite interesting...

I was more curious to do the DNA spit thing before I got my records unsealed, I was adopted as a baby and never knew anything. I'm pretty dang white but was told growing up I was "part Indian", but they didn't know what tribe or how much. Now I've actually found my birth relatives and finally got confirmation that I'm about 1/16th Cherokee, the rest being English and Scottish, a bit of Irish thrown in.
I feel bad for the things I missed out on, more than just general stuff but also about being Cherokee and losing a part that has already suffered so much loss. On my mother's side it's English traced back to the pilgrims, my father's side is the one with the Indian blood and records are lost from before the Trail of Tears. I don't have my great-great-grandmother's name, she is only listed as "Cherokee Woman". Nobody in the family still speaks the language but I've taken an online course and man is Tsalagi a complicated language.
Has anyone else looked for their roots and then been motivated to like learn a craft or language because of it?
