You are a walking time capsule...

...what DNA can (and can't) tell us about our past. Each of us carries a treasure-trove of information about our ancestors in the form of DNA. For a little bit of saliva and a not-so-little bit of cash, numerous direct-to-consumer genetic services now offer people an insight into their ancestry.
