Hold the phone! Results back yesterday.
Results pretty unexciting. Obviously, as a woman, no paternal information, but her mother's side spread through the near east, and Europe in what might be called the classic route. 2.2% Neanderthal might explain the feet...
The results are presented as a web site with lots of information, but it would be nice to have had some printable pages too.

Personally I'm far more interested in tracing the actual people in my history. I'd love to trace my lineage back to the 15th and 16th centuries and see what my ancestors were doing during the reign of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I.
