DNA Test Results Not Earth-Shattering

William Popomaronis was born in Baltimore to Greek immigrants, which made him wonder why his eyes are blue and his hair blond.

A DNA sample he submitted to Oxford Ancestors with a $400 check gave him the answer: He shares a bit of genetic ancestry with people from Finland and Northern Norway. Needless to say, the results left him in a state of utter equanimity.

"It wasn't earth-shattering," says Popomaronis, who lives in Phoenix in Baltimore County. "I didn't find out I had a long lost brother or sister somewhere or that I was the illegitimate son of somebody, but it did satisfy my curiosity." [Link]
