Where am I really from?That's the question that has been bugging me for a while now. I know I was born in Copenhagen, so that makes my nationality Danish, but I don't know where my ancestors were from. I have always wanted to know, so yesterday evening I bought a DNA testing kit, which I will have in my possession sometime next week.
I am still not sure how the DNA kit works, but the package will have instructions on how to perform and send the test. A few weeks later, I will get an email with my results.
I have always been told, that my grandfather was a ship builder in the southern part of Denmark, but I was then told yesterday, that one of my descendants were a deserter from the German forces back in World War 1, so it's possible that I have some unknown German family somewhere. Maybe, possibly further down in Europe. I am not expecting anything other than European. In fact, I am probably with 98% certainty a European, but you never know. I would, however, LOVE to have one of those "Well, I didn't expect THAT" moments.
We'll see once the results are in. I will, of course, keep you posted about the findings!
