Amen!

Bitsy and Teenie should be proud of their ancestry. I actually want to get one of those DNA testing kits (like "MyHeritage") to learn more about mine. Here is what I know: My dad's parents were from Sicily. My mom is part Italian (her dad's side of the family were from Calabria) and part Russian (her mom's side).  Even though it appears I am half Sicilian, a quarter Calabrese, and a quarter Russian, that really isn't the full picture.  For example, my grandmother was Russian, but from what region?  Also, my "great, great" ancestors could have been from anywhere in Europe or even Africa. I would love to know if there are other nationalities in my makeup. In fact, I am going to order a DNA kit once I am done typing. After I get my results (I think it takes about a month), I will post my findings. Stay tuned! -Tom
