My family got our ancestry DNA test results back, and we got some surprises. My son and his mom got similar percentages of Portuguese and Spanish background, while my daughter and I got similar percentages of Irish background.
We were told it’s common for siblings (even with the same biological parents) to have significantly different ethnic percentages in their backgrounds. As for whether or not my son or daughter looks more like their grandma (my mom) in the photo, most people say my daughter looks more like my mom and me.
We saved the money on the DNA test for my mom, because we know her mom was born in France, and her dad is a Hamilton, and that name easily traces back to Northern Europe through online family trees.
