I don't know if I mentioned it but I sent a cheek swab sample to:
https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/
a while ago.
I have read the finished results and sent links to sisters, mother and daughters.
Apparently the most complete information of ancestry can only be obtained from the males of a family because the females only have the X chromosome but the male has both X and Y.
So I guess I am a "real man" after all.
What I collected from one quick read is:
1) I am 1.5% Neanderthal and 1.4% Denisovian (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denisova_hominin
)
2) Closest match world wide is a Finnish tribe.

I would recommend this project to anyone - it is painless and cheap and piques my interest:
"Who ARE those guys?"
Edit:
I meant to mention that I am the last of the line and I don't expect to have a male offspring now.
