This is My Truth, A Customer’s Point of View – 23andMe October 29, 2019

I saw this on 23andMe recently – This is My Truth, A Customer’s Point of View: https://blog.23andme.com/23andme-customer-stories/this-is-my-truth-a-customers-point-of-view/.

This is something I warn about in my presentation – finding unexpected surprises.

By Lisa Altmann

23andMe changed my life in ways I never imagined.   It gave me the tools to find “my truth” and my unexpected yet amazing origin story.

I’ve always been overly curious. As a child, I would drive my parents nuts asking about anything and everything, including questions about our ancestors. I wanted to know where we came from but my parents had very little information to share with me.

I knew that their families had escaped Jewish persecution in Poland and Russia. They’d survived hardships, and immigrated to America through Ellis Island. I took a lot of pride in those Jewish roots. I was very close with my small but close-knit family but I wanted to know more about our ancestors.
