All growing up, I was told that my heritage led back to me being at least part Danish. So I took pride for many years about this. After losing contact with my father, and not really knowing everything about where I came from, it began to weigh on me a bit. What would I tell my kids when they asked what our heritage is? I could only tell them that from what I knew we were Danish. But I couldn’t tell them more.
So, finding that CRI Genetics could help me learn more about who I am, and where my ancestors are from I was excited to be able to check them out. Not knowing anything about my ancestors, I was actually quite amazed to find out I am in fact over 50% German. I knew just from looking into my maiden name that I had to be at least a little German, but I didn’t realize how much German I actually was. What was even more surprising to me, that even though my Great Grandparents have taken pride in our family being Danish, I am not actually Danish at all. I actually have Finland descent in my genetics. Which I thought was super cool.
Aside from the general information that you can get from a DNA test. You can also find out some pretty fun and interesting things about yourself. Even including, “Perfect Pitch.” Which according to my husband me not having perfect pitch is completely accurate. I guess to each ear their own. Aside from different traits that you can find out about yourself, CRI Genetics also has a Health and Wellness section that can help you with your present and future. Which is great, especially at the beginning of the year when you are typically trying to work on yourself more.
With all the information that CRI Genetics is able to help you find out about yourself, you are really able to learn a LOT. I don’t know that I even knew a quarter of the information that I found after doing my DNA test. For more information, please check out CRI Genetics.
