DNA Ethnicity for Donald Scott Lee
About Your DNA
You get half of your DNA from each parent, and only half of their DNA. However, which half is passed down is random. So while you and your sibling each got half of your DNA from your mom and half from dad, only some of it is the same DNA. And while you and a cousin each inherited roughly 25 percent of your DNA from each of your shared grandparents, even less of that DNA is the same. In general, the more distantly related you are to someone, the less DNA you both share.

This membership benefit has enabled me to connect with unknown cousins allowing us to collaborate on family research. I was able to connect with a member who had been adopted and searching for her family. Now she is part of our family and is in contact with her ancestors and relatives. This in itself is worth the fees I spend researching genealogy!
