Has anyone done the maternal dna test? If so, what did you think of the results? Did mine recently as my grandmother was adopted and I was curious to find out where the family originated from

Depends we all know that we all are 'out of africa'. But then it is where they went from there.

It is not so exact as to be able to tell you a country by country journey around the world.

It will give you an idea of where they came from.

An expensive way to find out if you are a Viking or a Saxon!!!

Did find out that the ancestry is African/Mediterranean, and the group I am is more common in Eastern Europe and Russia, which was interesting
