What to Expect
Your results will reveal your deep ancestry along a single line of direct descent (paternal or maternal) and show the migration paths they followed thousands of years ago. Your results will also place you on a particular branch of the human family tree. Some anthropological stories are more detailed than others, depending upon the lineage you belong to. For example, if you are of African descent, your results will show the initial movements of your ancestors on the African continent, but will not reflect most of the migrations that have occurred within the past 10,000 years. Your individual results may confirm your expectations of what you believe your deep ancestry to be, or you may be surprised to learn a new story about your genetic background.

Since my uncle on my dad's side is the only living male relative left. I am going to get this kit for him. I have already tested myself (2x on 2 different sites). I am going to ask my aunt, the only sister left from my dad's side, to take the test. So that I will have both my dad's parent's lineage traced.
