Mine would probably top out at around $1.50.

I would probably be the heir too billions of dollars or in line to the throne in some small country and I don't need that kind of pressure.

And if the police would probable have access to the results for years to come, you better keep a clean slate!

At least now you know Dad was a "sporting man". :lol: :hide:


He's about as wise now (mid-70's) as he was when he was 19, unfortunately! :roll:

Bah! Hum Bug! Spoken like a true commoner.
My governess always said we Blue Bloods should not listen to such nonsense. :)

I don't need any testing as it seems an Uncle of mine appears to be holding a very large sum of money for me and
according to that email he's a Nigerian Prince... so I'm definitely royalty.... :dunce:

not much value to Central Virginia Redneck DNA around here....the woods are full of us...
with just a little work I have tracked my daddys family back to near the revolutionary war.
my mothers folk were more recent imports from Germany and England.

The ancestry test is not very specific. it is my understanding that some of the newer ones give a little better data.
