Have you ever taken a DNA test and discovered you had ancestry you didn't know you had?

I'm from the Dominican Republic and my test shows I'm 6% Sephardic Jewish!

    DNA-tests do NOT figure out your actual ancestry. All they find is people with chromosomes (almost) identical to chromosomes of yours, like your 5th cousin twice removed, as far as they happen to be in the company's database.

    Passing on chromosomes is a lottery. Percentages are meaningless

    No.......I won't pay to be entertained and that is the only thing DNA tests do. All my ancestry is researched and proved from real records, all are a surprise as before research I didn't know about them
