Had a buccal test to see if Williams Syndrome showed any genetic markers from the parents.

DNA is nailing a lot of criminals these days as are surveillance cameras.

WHOOPS. Little hijacking here. Need coffee.

Well, if they traced me way back...I am pretty sure my ggggggggg grandfather was Adam and my ggggggggg grandmother was Eve.

No one in my immediate family dresses like that though.

I just submitted a DNA sample to Ancestry.com for testing. I was adopted from Quebec as an infant 62 years ago and am really, really curious. The P of Q never opened adoption files so I'm trying to find a starting place.

How exciting that you are able to find a starting place with DNA. I wish you only the best and please keep us informed.

You should do another check. I just saw a program on PBS that concludes they wore banana leaves instead of bikini fig leaves! Seriously!
