You’ve seen the adverts for them online, or you’ve actually gone ahead and bought a kit, but, at one point at least, you’ve thought about getting your DNA tested. What if you tested your DNA and got some shocking results back? Like this man from Montana who found out he possessed the oldest DNA!
One such place that offers a testing service is CRI Genetics. Like other companies who test your DNA for “biogeographical ancestry,” they can trace anyone’s genetic makeup and attempt to uncover where that DNA fits in the grand scheme of human evolution.
How DNA Testing Works
According to the CRI Genetics website, results are over 90% accurate. All you need to do is order a kit online, follow the instructions to take a swab, and then send it back to them for analysis. After about 6 weeks, you’ll have the results of your DNA testing in your email inbox.
CRI Genetics also states that they can trace back to over 50 years of ancestry, enabling you to know precisely where and when your ancestors are from.
The Oldest DNA
Darrell ‘Dusty’ Crawford got his DNA tested before his brother, Alvin “Willy” Crawford’s heart gave out. He had asked his brother to get it done out of curiosity, and the results were quite profound! CRI Genetics told Darrell that his results were so unprecedented that it was like finding Bigfoot!
Furthermore, this particular test showed the Crawford’s bloodline went back 55 generations. It was also the furthest CRI Genetics had ever tested. Meaning that Darrell Crawford possessed the oldest American DNA on the entire continent!
