Have you ever done a DNA test and wondered if you’re in for a nasty surprise?
DNA kits that reveal where your ancestors are from have soared in popularity in recent years.
Most people know where their parents and grandparents are from but are intrigued about whether there’s something more exotic lurking in the family tree.
However, some get their results back and receive the shock of their lives:
“As a joke I bought the ancestry kit - like under the influence of drinking,” Welshwoman Elsie told Futureproof.
“I actually forgot about it and six weeks later arrived back at my house and I had an email saying that, ‘Your ancestry results are in.’
“I looked at them and it said I was half Irish!”
To find out more about Elsie’s story and how she tracked down her Irish father, tune in to Futureproof this Sunday at 10am.
