DNA Testing My 95 Year Old Grandmother

April 8, 2017

July 9, 2016 My Creative Director and I drove 2.5 hours to Eastern Shore, Maryland to visit my 95 year old grandmother (on my motherโ€™s side). She is the only living grandparent I have and have ever known. I love her to pieces

Unfortunately, this is the second time weโ€™ve had to DNA my grandmother. As you can imagine, it is very difficult for a 95 year old woman to provide enough spit to fill half of a tube. I really hope Ancestry.com can do something with sample that she did give. If not, I am looking for other DNA testing companies that use hair samples or cheek swabs.

Here is my call-to-action, do not wait to start your family tree. And if you have the finances PLEASE PLEASE test the members in your family, especially if you do not know your familyโ€™s origin story. Why? Your future grandchildren will thank you.
