I can’t believe the response I have had to my artificial saliva method for AncestryDNA and 23andme! My blog generates a lot of hits typically, but my numbers have risen DRAMATICALLY since publishing my tutorial on artificial saliva for DNA testing! Haven’t seen my artificial saliva method yet? CLICK HERE! So far, I have seen my method circulated throughout various groups on Facebook, Reddit, other blogs and more! I can’t thank everyone enough for help spreading the word! This method is allowing MORE people to test, and thus, increasing the chances that more people will be able to find their answers! Every person added to these databases is a victory and something to be celebrated. These additions, while seemingly small and insignificant, are critical, especially for those of us who are searching for our biological families! You never know who might just be the match that leads to someone’s answer. Keep up the good work!
In the meantime, I have continued to use the method as necessary to obtain DNA samples. My niece recently tested, but unfortunately, she just couldn’t get enough spit going. I thought this would be a great opportunity to make an updated, short and sweet version of the tutorial. I mean, the last one was pretty long! Here it is!
Again, if you need written instructions, please refer to the previous link HERE.
Oh! And for those of you who INSISTED I was hurting my nephew by swabbing him, check out what Lexi has to say in the video about how much it “hurt.” She’s normally pretty wimpy, so if it hurt, she would make it very known.
