I asked my dad sometime early last week if he'd volunteer to give up some DNA for me so I can throw my lot in with all the other genealogists who've used DNA as another step in pursuing their ancestry -- in my case, my paternal Browning ancestry. Dad said something along the lines of, "Sure, anything for my girl!" (This daughter sure does love her daddy!) I received the packet and on Friday night he and I got together and he allowed me to swab his cheeks. I sent the letter off that very day.
I got an email this morning from Ancestry.com letting me know that they've received the DNA sample I sent in last week.
Yay! Another month or two and I might be able to find some common ancestry with some other Brownings.
