The weather was nice, the day was perfect. Great party. The turn out was not what was expected or how many was invited. most all the invited could not come due to working on saturdays. I still enjoyed being able to have the House Party for Ancestry.com/ DNA !!!! :D

oh my, let me just say that this day was VERY scary but ended in a good way, We were on our way (on the highway) to the place were i was having the party. We noticed a car drifting in and out of lanes. We slowed down behind the person and began to call the cops, before we knew it HE FLEW OFF INTO a deep ditch and some trees. looked as if he was doing 60mph at the time. we HAD to stop and check on him. i was sooo frightened i could NOT believe what i just saw. Luckily he was climbing out of his passenger side window. he was not injured on the outside that we could see. we stayed till the cops came which was within 5 min. i have NEVER shook like that in my life. i'm glad he is okay and alert. We actually showed up at our final destination and i was so shocked to see that many of my friends and family were ready to learn and bond like we USE to years ago. We all actually stay kinda far from each other but i was happy that many of them showed up. thank you so much houseparty and ancestry. just wanted to share that this is a day i will NEVER forget!

I had an unfortunate family situation occur the week of my originally scheduled party and have had to reschedule to a later date. However, I have been able to share my results with several of my family members- many of which were quite surprised. I would love to be able to have some of my siblings take the test to see how they varied. I look forward to sharing with my friends in the next few weeks!

Received my results yesterday, not too surprised about the mix. We had a prior obligation that prevented us from holding the party on the 7th and being that we live in a small town, pretty much everyone would have missed it. We're in the middle of moving and can't wait until we're settled in a week or so, that lets us invite everyone and really get into the details. I'm actually a little floored right now, our main goal in doing the DNA was to find out more about my grandmother's father. Info that we had hoped was right is probably not. The surname Dougherty matched but the DNA is saying that we're probably in the first cousin range. Which would make sense considering that my great-grandfather is the grandfather to the other person. I really never would have dreamed that it would have found something so close like that. I just hope that there is correct information between the two of us!
